Only because YOU think they are aberrations this must not be the opinion 
of others. Also they have proven rather useful in context of generics.

Ehm... AFAIK the only difference from XE2 namespaces to pre-XE2 
namespaces is that you can select a default namespace (and pre-XE2 
namespaces are already implemented in FPC).

Renaming the RTL units so that they use namespaces is a different topic 
though and was not yet decided upon.
