I like the idea of keeping the namespace clean and consistant, but the idea 
that one could "dojo.require("dojox.additions.something"); that would make 
something in the core dojo library more robust is a good one.  put the CODE 
in dojox, but when you require it, it over-rides or appens things in dojo 
core ... eg: dojo.style dojo.require('dojox.style.addons') and dojo.style and 
dojo.getStyle and setStyle all now exist ... bad example, but you get the 
point, no?

still keeps the core code small, and if you _want_ these extra features and 
whatnot, you don't have to differentiate between dojo.style and dojox.style, 
dojo.style just got enchanced instead ... 

my 0.02$US ...
