No no. I meant:
"the shell.tui's bundle manifest do no includes a Import-Package for 
org.apache.felix.shell but it works!!!"

It looks like a bug or maybe something that I do not understand about 
OSGi R4 classloading.

The OSGi R4 specification states that "Import-Service" should be only 
used for description of the bundle and also the "Import-Service" is 
deprecated, so if Felix is using the "Import-Service" for classloading 
that is a bug
