a) the hidden until released Final Daze policy - this seems very
important for project pairs that produce/consume a new API.
Can you elaborate about why this is important? And also about how hiding content on individual p2 repos whereas it's already merged in SimRel makes a difference? It looks to me that p2 repository policy isn't the suitable solution for API management. Dealing with version ranges in the OSGi bundles is much more sustainable.
