I am thinking a little bit "Brand Management" when I propose org.apache.felix, 
instead of org.apache.osgi.framework. The latter has no indication of where 
the code is "tied to", whereas a http://felix.apache.org will get a user 
straight to the source.
At all times pushing the Felix brand name as the Premier OSGi implementation 
will be important, and every little bit helps.
Bundles OTOH, will not be Felix dependent, hence the detach in namespace. 
However, I am not sure whether this project intends to host bundle 
subprojects or not.
