Suggested in [1]. Is it a good idea to have third parties (even if there 
are WG members involved) creating packages in the org.w3 namespace? As 
the checker is extensible anyone can create extensions, but it would be 
confusing and unmanageable if they were to all to start creating 
org.w3.* packages, potentially overlapping each other. In this case the 
proposal is to include the extension in the source tree but this won't 
always be the case. I suggest that it would be better for each developer 
to use their own namespace.

regards,

Alan
