IMHO, yes transitional solutions are acceptable, and possibly even preferable.

*I* would like to see;

First Incubating Release - current package names.

Then (optionally) - compatibility layer where org.apache.river wraps the
                    com.sun.jini classes.

Last Incubating release - the com.sun.jini classes are the wrappers to the
                          org.apache.river classes.

First Full Apache release - only org.apache.river classes.

And I also think there is no contention about keeping the net.jini API classes 
as-is, without package name changes, which is what the majority of the Jini 
users actually refers to.

Would that work?
