No, the Geronimo deployment plans remain the same.  The information 
inside the deployment plans is used to create a plugin, which in the new 
world, is a bundle.  The information in the deployment plans is used to 
determine what dependencies need to be loaded into the OSGi framework 
and how the manifest information in the generated configuration bundle 
needs to be generated.  Once a configuration is loaded, then the 
internal classloading model is the OSGi one, but the deployment plan 
metadata is used to determine how the environment is provisioned.
