I figured it was a typo ;-) So the basic difference between SM and 
Universes is that the latter uses a community policy (you "ought" not to 
put bad things there) right? This sounds reasonable but can we then 
please drop the silly nonsense about "guaranteed to work together"? If 
you need a catchy marketing phrase, how about "community tested"? (in 
the best of all worlds this is just what it would be)

Also, this only seems to emphasize the complementary nature of Universes 
and SM. If, say, Universes would use SM as their "backend-storage" you 
could have your cake and eat it too: Sets of community-tested packages 
that are available for one-click install, and "all code ever written for 
Squeak" available on SM for historical or porting purposes.
