We discussed this in a thread a month or so ago.  I think the answer
was yes, but with two concerns on the timing:

1) There was some category-b per-requisite components that we had in
SVN.  At least one project member thought this needed to be done
before graduation. The plan was to move them to Apache Extras.  But
doing so would break the build in AOO 3.4 release.  So we agreed to
fix this in AOO 3.4.1.

2) Some of us wanted to avoid the distraction of a graduation vote at
the same time as the 3.4.1 release, a time when we're really
heads-down on the release end game..  Especially if this would lead to
disruptive naming changes that would have an impact on product UI
and/or release communications due to changing URL's and email
addresses, etc.

So the discussion at that time was to push for AOO 3.4.1 release by
end of July and then start the graduation proceedings.

Of course, I'm not saying this is set in stone. But that was the
outcome of the prior discussion.
