Yes, I now see this constraint added to modules in general and it appears to
have snuck in in some earlier draft, where I missed it. Apologies for not
having noticed this until now.

I would, nevertheless, very much appreciate knowing when this new rule was 
agreed to. The last I remember significant discussions of module import 
semantics was at the August 2004 F2F (the whole module resources vs module 
renaming discussion). At that time, there was no such rule in the spec, and I 
see no such rule in the proposal we agreed to at that time.  Indeed, I recall as 
part of the discussion (although this point doesn't seem to be captured in the 
official minutes) a rejection of this interpretation.

This "all modules with that namespace" is a weird and unenforceable constraint
anyway and should be dropped, especially if we never explicitly agreed to it.
