You wouldn't be the first one asking to keep a namespace for
compatibility sake, see
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/WicketProposal. However, the recent
beta from the Wicket guys is in the org.apache.wicket namespace.

I'm not sure if there are any stringent and formal rules from the ASF,
but indeed I would be very reluctant in releasing Apache code under a
non-Apache namespace, unless packages are carved in stone by an
implemented standard (such as javax.xml and, I assume, net.jini)
