You say yourself that we cannot always use this convention, so I'd  
say it's not necessary to have it. I think we should just agree that  
code in the sandbox can never by released officially (neither as  
snapshots, nor as parts of official releases). That eliminates most  
problems if you ask me.

Yes, I agree, that is the time to formally review the code and  
package naming is one of the issues that should be reviewed.
