We used to package the framework as two different JARs, one with the 
OSGi API and one with the framework bits. This was deemed inconvenient 
for users so we eventually merged them.

You may want to think twice about this, though, since frameworks are 
allowed to provide their own implementations of classes in the OSGi JAR. 
They might not be happy if you give them the standard version.
