Any issues with backwards compatibility?  (I think we should try to
minimize renames that would require actions by our users.)

The dash I think violates OSGi naming conventions.  See
http://markmail.org/thread/57yzgah4l62if5mo  I think that at one point
in time (maybe now, too), Eclipse did not handle the dash - so all of
our Eclipse plugins use the dot instead, following Eclipse conventions. 

At any rate, the -incubating will go away once we graduate...
