I suggested it in a response to Gianugo.

And not really sure about that... I noted it because IIRC in the past XML4J
was a backport from Xalan-J 1.x and was using the com.ibm package names for
that reason... But either I am wrong, or someone gave some more
clarifications higher up...

Thinking out loud... What if someone modifies an org.apache.cocoon class in
an incompatible way and distributes it incorporated in a product called
"Comanche Baboon" ???
