Why three? OK, we cannot control Hipparchus, so we can let it aside. The 
proposal of Eric and Gilles just describe a scenario where some code of the 
big dumping ground CM that has a wide audience and only slightly tied to 
deep mathematical theory is ripped out into individual components of Commons 
and the rest is moved into a Math TLP and divided there. So where do you see 
two development lines at Apache (at least for the same code)?
