|Base extension point availability question? [message #650182]

I'm working on learning the eclipse rcp and I'm wondering about something. I don't seem to be able to add any of the base extension points in the manifest view "extension points" that should be available in the jars that the rcp loads as dependencies. < Wow, I hope that makes sense > Nor can I figure out how to export any of the base packages on the Runtime tab.
So, my question is, do I explicitly have to make the extension points in the base packages available through the Extension Points tab or the Runtime tab export feature for future developers who may wish to extend from base extension points in my app? All the tutorials say that unless I explicitly expose my extension points that OSGi will not make them available for extension. They will be invisible.
Is it implicit that the base extension points provided by the rcp runtime dependencies are available to future extension writers?
Are the only extension points that need to be explicitly exposed those that I create myself?
Basically, if I write an application and someone wants to improve it by adding a whole new perspective to the workbench, are those extension points available to them without having to modify any of the base code?
