This is a minor technical point which can probably be handled editorially.

We allow a module to do an "import module" on its own namespace.

We say that the effect of this is to import all modules for that namespace. This
includes the importing module.

We say that it's an error if the imported module contains functions or variables
that clash with those defined in the importing module. But when a module imports
itself, there will always be such a clash.

Solution: we should specify that when a module does an "import module" on its
own namespace, it should import all modules for that namespace *other than itself*.

(We have a bit of a problem with module identity: how do we know whether two
URIs identify the same module? But I suggest we leave implementations to sort
that one out.)
