I agree to have a consistent policy when dealing with common issues, 
changing the package name is the right solution to avoid conflicts 
between incompatible releases.

However it's a bit late to require a package change just for jumping to 
a new major version. Among the components that changed their major 
revision number (collections, lang, cli, modeler, attributes), only CLI 
changed its package, and it was justified by a complete incompatible 
refactoring of the API.
