But Tantek told my not to categorize? (Thats the reason why I am "not
bold" and writing here)

Great, I will do it;)

Plain links in a continuous text are often not so readable. And link

I think you are right, often content is too namespaced,
especially-filesystem-geeks overshoot here. So I will do It without.
And  if we  want  namespaces in the future, all options are still open.
