The SDO TC has expressed the desire to continue to use the "commonj.sdo"
package names for all interfaces defined by the SDO/J specification.
We are aware that a similar request has come from the SCA/J TC, and the
request was finally rejected. However, one of the rationals for this decision
was that SCA does not have an existing user base. This is not the case for
SDO. Serveral companies have existing products that use the "commonj.sdo"
package. These products have a wide customer base. We expect a push back
from our users if we now require repackaging. The will be a significant blow
to the acceptance of SDO 3, of the entire SDO TC effort. Because of this, we
would like to request that we be allowed to use the "commonj.sdo" package.
Of course, this does not affect the namespaces used in any XML and XSDs that
we define. For XML, we will continue to use the OASIS standard namespaces.
