It will be a bi-directional integration, so OGIi bundles will be able  
to see geronimo services and geronimo services will be able to see  
bundles (and services in bundles).  Using your terminology it will be  
a container.

Yes, except Geronimo doesn't use extension points, so there will be  
nothing to "extend", although the bundles will be able to see the  
other bundles that have extension points.

There will be a GBean for the OSGI framework, one for each bundle and  
one for each service in the bundle.

Great.  Having people able to test-drive the implementation right  
away will make effort much more successful.
