Very interesting. To me it looks like we cannot agree on prefixes
already... thus I infer that if namespaces would work, then the
current disagreeing is about "any renames" more than disagreeing with
the "prefix" (namespace) chosen. Putting things in namespace would not
be seen as renames, because they can still get the "untouched" names
