Other possibly (more useful) usage would be reducing the generic unit
name clashes. eg: How common is the unit name constants.pas? Very
common. So when using various libraries that all could contain a unit
named constants.pas, using namespaces means we can easily get around the
unit name clash issue.

I've never used namespaces in any of my projects, but I sure can see a
use for it. Beyond the "flatten directory hierarchy" example I mentioned

ps #2:
Unit namespace clashing is exactly why fpGUI uses the fpg_* unit name
format. Because my first attempt of FP* and fpg* clashed with units
included with FPC.
