Cleanup dependencies by consistently using re-export.
See the attached PDF for a current analysis of the dependencies of the AF3 plugins.
However, the MANIFEST.MF files of nearly every plugin contains redundant imports.
For example, sometimes even "kernel" or "kernel.base" is imported although it is
also available from "component" via re-export.
This should be cleaned up by this issue.
Please, file any remarks if You think that re-export should not be used and why?

Issue is resolved. We can merge it directly after the release.
I think no testing or review is needed: If a dependency would be wrong, AF3 would not compile any longer. The plugins which are known to be critical at runtime (such as help support) were left in place.
