Purely from an OSGi point of view it's perfectly fine for multiple bundles to export the same package. I'm sure we have plenty of other cases of this in the release train. There are even cases where there are multiple copies of the same bundle (with different versions). I don't know anything about the specific details of this package - does it causes problems for an application if they get wired to the wrong one? I.e., are the two packages interchangeable from the perspective of a consumer?
