Is this R4 or Eclipse? I can't find it in R3 spec.

By the sound of it, "Require-Bundle X" means that the bundle will not be 
started without the "X Bundle" being present. A kind of "Must Have" 
dependency. And the import is the "normal" "Would Like To Have" dependency, 
understood implicitly that the bundle will work without it (work being fairly 
loose description).
