After giving it more thought, I would not be against having a
w3c.jigsaw.contrib package, which could be used as the root of
externally  developped extensions to Jigsaw. So for example your
JavaApiDirectoryResource could go into 

w3c.jigsaw.contrib.JavaApiDirectoryResource. If you were to build a
full app on top of jigsaw (needing its own packages and the like),
youcould either:

a) Use the Java convetion (if you want to sell it, for example)
b) Use the contrib directory (w3c.jigsaw.contrib.app)
c) If your app is to be included in Jigsaw releases then it would
probably be w3c.jigsaw.app - the server side include resource, for
example, sits in w3c.jigsaw.ssi)

Anselm.
