That's certainly true for the osgi.core jar, which must be used only as a build-time dependency (and indeed it's better to build against this than against a specific framework such as Equinox, since you avoid accidentally depending on anything not in the spec).
However there is no problem using the osgi.cmpn or osgi.enterprise jars as deployed bundles in the runtime. Some people complain that they are too big and incoherent, but I don't particularly care since they are only interfaces and pure APIs.

Thank you for the feedback.Â
The moral of the story is only use the osgi.org
API jar's as reference, not as actual deployable artifacts.

Several of the OSGi
in Equinox Juno are used as RI for OSGi Compendium 4.3: DS,
Initial Provisioning, Event Admin, Wire Admin. So all those
are at the Compendium 4.3 level.
I don't know the status of the
OSGi spec impls in Equinox Juno.
ECF  implements Remote Services (compendium in 4.3, core in 5.0)
and Remote Services Admin (enterprise) specs.Â
With Juno release, both of these impls are now at the OSGi 5.0 spec
