Subject Re: What namespace should new components go in?

Sure but the functionally is more spark validator like with their locale support. 

So far option 2 (new namespace) was the most popular option. Any suggestions on how to resolve

the job again though). By updating the manifest, there wouldn't be any mxml namespace issue.
Is it possible that we can make a component have 2 packages via the manifest files?

codebase for both the URI, and spark container/controls packages.

I think we need to think very carefully about anything that breaks backwards compatibility
for users of the SDK and if it does provide a very clear path on how to update. There's lot
of useful code on blogs, in books, training material etc etc having that no longer work would
cause a few of issues.
