Added a bacground note about the naming issue

  This work gave birth also to an effort at creating a more generic CMIS implementation framework.
This effort, named "Chemistry", has been led by Florent Guillaume and other Nuxeo employees.
The Chemistry work has taken place in a Mercurial source repository outside Apache, since
the developers are not yet Apache committers and thus do not have write access to the Jackrabbit
  This situation with separate codebases in separate source repositories was causing confusion
and coordination problems. The effort was clearly no longer just an extra component in Jackrabbit,
and so it was proposed that the project should brought to the Incubator where it can grow
in a more controlled and yet less constrained manner.
+ The project name went through a few iterations before reaching "Apache Chemistry" (based
on CMIS, as in !CheMIStry). There were some concerns about that name being too "general" and
conflicting with potential future chemistry projects in Apache, but we feel that these are
mostly hypothetical issues. There is also a minor naming overlap with another Java project
called "Chemistry Development Kit", but the developers of that project weren't too concerned
about that so we think it's fine for us to use this name.
