Don't get the "org.apache.cocoon.lucene.lucene/", do you mean

As explained in my previous answer, sitemap blocks will also be OSGi blocks.

I'm not certain about exactly what "distinction" you refer to above. 
Blocks (bundles) will be able to expose: classes, resources, components 
and sitemap functionality. For some blocks it will make sense to expose 
most or all of these categories and for others just a single category.

For a block that exposes *reusable* sitemap functionality it might make 
sense to expose this together with components and possibly APIs. I would 
assume that hypothetical future Forrest, Lenya and Linotype blocks would 
do that. Samples are normaly *non-reusable* and therefore it is better 
to separate them. The reason for the core block to be a component (and 
API) block is mainly that it doesn't have any obvious reusable sitemap 
functionality to export.
