The API's won't be the same in a number of cases. For something like
grokcore.component, we will probably share the exact same semantics and
not shadow it. But things like tiles, page templates and views will
behave in different ways.

The full proposal is not yet finished, so this is a debate to be had
later, when we have something concrete to talk about.
