I think naming is fine in that regard, and should be considered for 
release at this point as a separate component as it is mature, has a 
number of people looking at it, and it is both useful on its own, and 
within applications such as Tomcat and potentially Directory.

Absolutely. It is somewhat different, but there are definite parallels. 
Featuritis at one point led to a graveyard of half-finished or 
unsupported plugins that still remain for backwards compatibility, but 
little more.
