Is there any reason why both full words couldn't be used? I'm imagining a
component called collections-primitive that involves no repackaging.  I
guess it might clash with a future primitives subpackage of collections
but that's surely not on the cards is it?

Can't remember if its in any charter or not but my thinking is that the
package should always match the compontent name.  When the jar name also
follows suit and maintanence is so much easier for the end user.

Just more colours,
