@namespace may fall into the same category as xmlns, ie it's lexical and thus 
some might consider it shouldn't be exposed (for xmlns, it depends on the 
interface). However given that CSSCharsetRule is there, I see no reason for that 
to apply in this case. I would indeed find a CSSNamespaceRule most useful in 
manipulating namespaced CSS.

Note that namespaces are now found in CSS 3 Selectors, which I guess is why the 
WD is stagnating.
