Big +1. 

We of course cannot control standard APIs like org.w3c.dom, or javax.*
etc., but for software that is developed at Apache the Java packaging
should always be org.apache.*. IMO that's the signal to the world of
Java programmers that they're using ASF code and its a valuable signal
that we must not lose.

"Hurting" current users with the change cost is a good thing in this
case IMO: that way they too realize that there's a big change in the
project and that its now an ASF project.
