Overall this is a great direction.

Ideally we would move to more of a dependency injection technique so p2 is not coupled to services or extensions. For example, in the Toast example (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Toast) for the OSGi book (http://equinoxosgi.org) we used a interface that provides the things needed. We provided service backed and extension backed implementations. Much nicer.
