The default package is a standard Java concept. It is defined more
as the absence of a package, i.e. the fact that there is no package
name for the classes that are "in" it. I think it would be
misleading to allow it to be treated as if it had a name. The IDE
should not create the sort of confusion that such a change could cause.
