bundle symbolic name doesn't have to match to its Java packages (both
exported and private). E.g. full content of Java package
org.eclipse.core.runtime is actually spread into other bundles, most
notably, org.eclipse.equinox.common and org.eclipse.equinox.registry.
Bundle org.eclipse.core.runtime itself requires others bundles
contributing content of org.eclipse.core.runtime Java package, reexports
this dependencies and therefore ease client usage (you can depend just
on this plug-in and receive everything needed in single step).
