This is pretty much exactly where JB and I have been going with the recent 
changes in the features.  Basically, the projects all STOP redefining features 
like spring and cxf and such.   Instead, they grab those from the appropriate 
place (and using a version range to accommodate updates).

For example:
Karaf 2.2.4 defines all the Spring things.  Thus, neither Camel or CXF define 
that anymore.  They just grab spring from there (using "[3,4)" or similar).   
Camel 2.8.2 will use the CXF 2.4.3 features directly.  (no redefines)

If you don't use an obr, we still have issues with different bundle versions 
of various things.   I did sync CXF and Camel as much as possible a little 
while ago, but they will likely drift a bit.   

Anyway, Karaf 2.2.4, CXF 2.4.3, and Camel 2.8.2 will go a long way to make it 
a lot easier and more consistent.
