It's like those damned imports in Python. Why can't everything just be
available in one big honkin' namespace automatically?


Seriously - it's not that bad. ZCML's use of namespaces is judicious,
I believe. There's no namespaced attributes - just the directives. I
too use browser: as the default namespace in my browser focused ZCML

There's only one or two things to type, ever. The namespaces are easy
to remember. I can't believe it's a big deal at all. It's certainly a
case of 'explicit is better than implicit', I believe. Like with
Python code and modules and avoidance of import *, it makes all names
easily traceable.

Are you using an editor that makes it difficult to go to the top of
the file to check on the names?
