I've got nothing more to add, Sacha couldn't explain it better. :-)

But let me just give a quick comment on our current work.

There are three things we are looking into:
a) Classloading
 - we've refactored the whole classloading layer in order to make OSGi just one of the policies
 - it's the classloader dependencies resolution that is still missing, which is also the trickiest part :-)
b) OSGi core API
 - I've started with this, but due to other MC/AS5 issues, this is on holdup
 - this is the easiest part of the work, and a nice way to get started with MC project - all the pieces are there, just need to put it in proper place :-)
c) OBR (OSGi bundle repository)
 - this is a part that is optional, but would ease the user development a lot
 - we're looking how to proper plugin this piece in our existing AS5 ProfileService work
 - the work that's already been done by Richard Hall (Felix lead) should be taken into account

As Sacha already said, we're always happy to see some helping hands. 
And I can guarantee that integrating OSGi with MC is/will be a lot of fun. ;-)
