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?

Best Regards,
Hermann
