Definitely +1 to dropping the minimal bundle, it was introduced
originally to minimize DOSGi CXF single bundle distributions but it
won't be needed when DOSGi CXF gets updated to CXF 2.6.0

It does not give us much now in Karaf with its features easily pulling
in various smaller bundles together but dropping it might make it more
difficult for some users to migrate to CXF 2.6.0 in cases they depend
upon it for the apps deployed into non-Karaf based OSGI containers (I
expect some users do it).

I guess I'd not mind to keep the cxf jaxrs in the 2.6.x main branch if
possible till 2.7 for example. But I recognize it is mostly redundant.
I'll try to play with some of the demos and migrate them to depending
on smaller bundles, if it simply a matter of updating the maven deps
then it would be easy to migrate :-)
