I also have few problems rationalizing some of the package names in 
Axis2 Java.
There was a vote yesterday on Java list on replacing
but when I asked what happen to the package name, no one answered. I can 
understand the rationale for class name changes, but that means there is 
something wrong with the package name too. May be java code is grown 
enough it is hard to change the package names now.

While it is good to have our own names to modules, we also have to keep 
in mind that Java code itself is the latest documentation available to 
us on Axis2 architecture. So if we are to change the module names we 
better document the mapping between our names to the Axis2 architecture 
clearly, else if there is a change at some point, we will have trouble 
mapping it into our implementation.
