Maybe the maven project.xml 2 pom.xml converter may consider maven1 
properties that have a direct equivalent in maven2 ?
For example, if junit is refered as :

this <scope> property has no effect on maven1 but is valid and adds 
documentation to dependency use. It can be converted to the <scope> 
element in a maven2 pom.

This can be a way to "help" the converter when a project is aware of 
beeing used by maven2 users but doesn't use it itself.

Just my 2 cents...
