EWS was what I was hoping for; likely to be sufficient. But it could also be 
integrated into the development process as, say, check-webkit-style is.

But I don’t think that required extensive use of namespaces is the best way to 
greatly mitigate this. Mistakes will still happen. So I think we shouldn’t go 
too far in ruining readability of code for something that is not necessary to 
solve the problem.

Recommending either namespaces or globally unique names and clarifying that 
file local scope doesn’t exist are both good.

But again I think people already handle these problems fine in headers so we 
don’t need too tight a straitjacket, at least not out of the gate.
