_Using_ a commons component in another jakarta project is a huge
commitment to that component. The rule is there to make people know
that they can use a commons component without fear. The rule
allows people that use a component to get more involved in it's
development - including by vote and review of the code and vetoing
change that are wrong.

That's what makes commons successfull IMHO. Changing that will turn
it into avalon - who may have nice code, but most people prefer
to reimplement the code rather than using it.

( and don't tell me that it's the fault of the mean people who
just want to reinvent the wheel. The fact that commons got where
it is today proves that we can share code )
