No, package admin may not be available on all future framework implementations of R4.3. I have no plans to remove it from equinox because I know it is used by many clients and I don't want to break them. I would hope that most framework implementations would have the same concern and will keep an implementation of PackageAdmin around for a long time.
I'm not sure I understand the seriousness of this "breaking change" though. There is an alternative way of doing this as BJ suggests. Also, PackageAdmin may have been a mandatory core service in OSGi R4.2 specification, but it has not always been so. Previous releases of the core specifications made the PackageAdmin service optional. Although I don't think there is any reasonable core framework implementation available that does not provide PackageAdmin at the moment.
