The appropriate way to do this is using rdfs:seeAlso for the URL and
the dc:format attribute containing the format of the information, i.e.

<rdfs:seeAlso  dc:format="application/x-maven+xml"

Any tool that understood maven build files (or make files, or ant
files...) would check for an appropriate dc:format or reasonable
looking file name and process it.
