I want to use e4 services such as the EModelService and EPartService in an OSGi-services.
My OSGi-services are typically created using gemini blueprint, but that's not terribly important for this issue.
1. How can I get hold of e4 services in the OSGi service context?
2. Is there an OSGi-service providing these e4-services or any other kind of handle that can be reliably* reached from a OSGi-service (*there is the issue of creating the services in the right order, you ideally want them injected by the framework (e.g. blueprint) when they are ready).
3. Can the EventAdmin service be used in any way?
The reason for this is that I want to start my GUI components using an OSGi-service, avoiding a dependency to Eclipse e4.

As Brian said, workbench services are NOT exposed as OSGi-Services|
because we e.g. want things like RAP work as well and then you have
multiple model instances, same is true for IEventBroker, ... they all
need to be isolated to an application *instance*.
You'll also notice that there multiple EPartService types
(ApplicationPartServiceImpl and PartServiceImpl) because an EPartService
is created through an ContextFunction so it's scope is narrowed even
more, same is true for other services, a user of this services inside an
e4 app does not have to and *should not* know about this!
