Not necessarily, reserve DNS is a possible convention but it's likely
there will be others too, maybe <project/library>.<component> or names
similar to Maven artifact ids for example.
In the current prototype then JDK modules are prefixed with "jdk." or
"sun." but that will likely change. As the module graph and the modules
that comprise Java SE will be something defined by Java SE 8 then it's
very likely they will include "java" in the name.

There isn't requirement that the view names be prefixed with the module
name. We have examples in the current prototype where this isn't the
case - for example the jdk.devtools module has the views jdk.javac and

Jon is best one to answer this but it should work for a single module,
but not multiple modules of course.
