[p2-dev] p2 bundle versions

As part of the work I did on [1], I added a new method to the MetadataFactory. Since this class is API, I've up'd the version number (to 2.1.0) and added the @since tag to the new method. However, the engine had requiredBundle dependency on the metadata with a pretty strict dependency [2.0.0, 2.1.0).  I'm not sure we need the range this tight.  I've opened it up a bit more [2.0.0, 2.2.0) and increased the version of the engine to 2.0.1.  

[1] 279015: Support update descriptor advice in p2.inf
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=279015

So I have a few questions:
1. Is that the right approach?
2. Can we open up the engine even more, say [2.0.0, 3.0.0), or is there a reason for the tight range?

cheers,
ian
