I agree.

There's no requirement that sub-projects fall under a top-level  
project namespace. There are certainly lots of examples of this...  
XBean and Yoko being two examples within Geronimo. There are lot's of  
examples outside of Geronimo...

If we have a fundamental difference of opinion on this, then we can  
certainly put it to a group vote. Barring such a disagreement, I don't  
think a vote is needed... I'll assume that subsequent discussion will  
determine if a vote is needed.
