Ah, that's interesting. Because I recently released a package called "z3c.iban", which is basically about a schema about the international bank account number. Someone recently suggested to rename it to z3c.schema.iban, which sounds a good idea to me, however, in this case my package would use another package, namely z3c.schema, as namespace. So what's your suggestion in this case?
