Re: [equinox-dev] Transition

To elaborate BJ's point a bit further. There may be multiple implementations 
of a given service. For example, there are a couple of implementations of the 
HTTPService. The URLStreamHandlerService was specifically designed for 
multiple implementions to be running on the same framework. (As an aside, it 
is also an example of how to use the ServiceRegistry in a situation where you 
would normally use ExtensionPoints.)

The Conditions can also be implemented as extension bundles. I would expect 
the MEG conditions (as well as other application specific conditions) to be 
deployed that way. Some conditions may not use or provide services.
