Some languages take extra steps to try and avoid relying on a unique
global namespace, and rely instead exclusively on relative names.

See https://dl.acm.org/doi/abs/10.1145/325478.325518 for instance.
Whether that can be considered as having a unique global namespace or
not is somewhat philosophical, admittedly (and the abstract itself
suggests the authors aren't sure either ;-)
