I would also be good to ressurect the page called 
NamespacesChickenLittling, of which I can see no trace but is referred 
to in "vote-links-faq" i.e. "For followup Q&A about VoteLinks and 
namespaces, see NamespacesChickenLittling".

this could probably cover the hAudio namespace useage also.


p.s. I'm not sure namespaces can be said to have failed when has two of them..
