Ok, something like {5,256}
All Package Keys with 4 or less characters must be allowed by the 
association. Normally you will PackageKey with more characters.
So basic and short PackageKeys can be used for the Core and used for 
more general packages like "News" (tt_news).
But this could be discussed in the next days ;)

I didn't want to disallow them. Just a check for Uppercase. Especially 
words from TYPO3. Perhaps there are some more words.

-> abbreviation
e.g. PHP or company names (e.g. DHL)

Words like PHP might not be checkable.

So, see you tomorrow.
