The fact that Jeff and Simon writes;
<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?
