I have always viewed a Universe to be "more or less" a sub collection (a
list really) of specific *releases* of packages that is collectively
maintained by a smaller (smaller than the whole Squeak community - and
possibly just being a few people) team.

Given that definition I always felt it could be represented by a new
co-maintained SM artifact that is simply just such a list. If I an
Giovanni (plus hopefully one or two more?) get around doing SM3 then I
suspect we would include such a concept.
