If Felix is looking at this as an opportunity, to attract more OSGi
activity at the foundation, expand its base of contributors (at least
to common underlying components) and demonstrate that the ASF encourages
creation of the best-of-breed solutions, I'd hope to see some Felix PMC
members step up to help mentor this effort and identify places where
the best choice between common code is a win for all efforts.

+1, and I put the onus equally on felix and aries contributors to make
that happen, if it can.
