I would like to see full support for configurations in Felix Configuration 
Admin format (.config). This feature is essential for Sling on Karaf as 
several components require not only strings in configurations[1], but not 
supported in .cfg format [2]. Support for this format in Pax Exam is under way 

For downstream projects (like Sling), early pre-releases would be helpful for 
transition. There was some uproar as I had to disable build jobs for 
Sling/Karaf when switching to 4.1-SNAPSHOT ("no external snapshots policy") to 
catch up with current Sling (requires R6).
