Very interesting case, that _I_ have not thought of.

It essentially mean that we can't leverage the <scope> for determining whether 
it should be inserted into the Bundle or expected to come from elsewhere.

Would it work better if one says; If the dependency HAS packaging!=osgi-bundle 
AND scope!=provided AND scope!=test then it should BE ADDED into the bundle
