Correct.

The fact that Jeff and Simon writes[1];
<quote>In fact, it [http://www.eclipse.org/equinox] is the reference 
implementation for the framework portion of that specification.</quote>
and is the dominant perception in the industry is, if I understand Tom right, 
inaccurate. It should read something more like;

"Equinox has been used to create the Reference Implementation" or perhaps the 
opposite "Equinox is a direct derivation of the Reference Implementation".

And is the Reference Implementation from OSGi available to the public?[2]
