This is a copy of what I added to the bug:

Just an just idea but why not add a new subclass like
RemoteContainerTypeDescription to ContainerTypeDescription as well as
something like IRemoteContainerInstantiator to a != org.eclipse.ecf
bundle to separate the remote service implementation from the rest of
ECF. The benefits are:

A) Don't have to implement getSupportedConfigTypes() in all the
containers that have nothing to with OSGi remote services. (most
containers return null in getSupportedIntents()).

B) won't have to deal with p2/build inclusion.

A2) If separating RemoteContainerDescriptions from local
ContainerDescriptions does not make sense, we should at least at an
(abstract) superclass to all ContainerInstantiators that returns null on
their behalf.
