I don't think so. Declarative Services is part of the Compendium
Specification and IIRC has just been copy-pasted to the Enterprise

Therefore, I prefer to keep it in the Apache Felix project.

I don't agree, either; at least not now.

While DS and Blueprint service similar purposes they are quite (not to
say fundamentally) different.

What you would like to gain, you gain without such a merger. Both can
perfectly coexist in the same framework and developers can perfectly use
whatever they like because both use the framework's service registry to
access services.
