Putting some dots on the i:

* permission to use Avalon Phoenix as a 'brand name' will need to be 
granted by the Avalon PMC
* the license won't be Apache's anymore since this requires its codebase 
to be residing in ASF CVS, and the Avalon PMC having oversight over the 
* in case of a fork, I'm pretty sure package names for Phoenix' 
implementation classes will need to renamed, but unless you use 
Phoenix-specific classes or methods in your apps, that shouldn't have 
too much effects

I hope this helps and can trigger some discussion.

Kind regards,
