I have had similar reflections. From a technical stand point it could be 
developed in some other community as it doesn't depend on the rest of 
Cocoon. But as it is based on years of community work from Cocoon, I 
think it belongs to Cocoon.

Also I think we have some agreement that we should make more parts of 
Cocoon reusable outside Cocoon and then the same will be the case for 
them as well.

We should develop it to a point where it works for Cocoon first ;)

I'm very interested in suggestions about how we could cooperate with the 
Felix community about this. As you suggest it could be interesting for 
some of them and feedback from the OSGi community would be very valuable.
