The point of my earlier email is that we are the enforcers of the 
guidelines.  The guidelines state 4 to 5 or more modules with the same 
purpose could be group by a package.  The guidelines state that a 
package with 4 to 5 or more sub-module could create its own package. 
But there is no guideline for what to make the package name.  It only 
lists a few that were valid at the time the guidelines were written. 
Maybe it is time for the guidelines to be revisited.
