Jolly good, thank you.  I've looked at it.

Happily, so far as I can see the two proposals are identical!  At least
I cannot identify any points of difference.  If you think they differ,
can you say where?

Your spec is a little unclear about whether the package name is
compulsory in every import.  Under "The best of both worlds / Shared
name space" you say that plain "import A.B.C" looks in all exposed
packages and bleats if its ambiguous.  That's what we propose, and it's
satisfactorily backward compatible.  And that is what your syntax
implies too.
