It was clearly a misunderstanding. The current work is largely to put
all the loose bits into a coherent order, effectively creating a solid
QA environment (kudos!!), a non-trivial effort. So, the upcoming
release is all about getting into a consistent state, and doing so
with only bug fixes foud during QA setups. Hence, as Sim explains,
package names are seen too disruptive for that effort, as well as the
nature of the upcoming release is "drop-in replacement, bug fixes
only", no impact on users.

But, importantly, the community has committed itself to remove the
com.sun namespace as soon as that release is out.
