Fine.  See you on the packaging list.  Do we agree this issue is packaging
and is not namespacing?  Or do you think there is something that governs
the interpretation of the names in a namespace that should be categorically
reserved to be expressed in a package wrapper or description?  I don't
a_priori accept that there is any such packaging-reserved semantics.  My
bias going into the discussion is that there should be equivalent
intradocument and extradocument ways to say anything that needs to be
covered here.
