If they all would be sharing classes, that would definitely be a source for
classloader problems. However, if your proposal in favour of a common jar
file would be accepted, one might remove these classes from the other
projects and be fine.

I have no idea of the intended schedule. As long as the projects do not even
have a public specification, I see no need to follow them in advance. Note,
that the final releases will most probably move these classes to other
locations as well.
