This wasn't a disagreement with your general point.  I was just
trying to say that the problem did not ine fact exist at some point,
so the empirical rathole perhaps doesn't need to be explored.  The
style question is the only one that is relevant, I think.  (I happen
to agree with you on that, and it seems to me that a more complete
proposal for namespace guidelines might be nice.)

I remember when computers were frustrating because they *did* exactly what 
you told them to.  That actually seems sort of quaint now.
