I agree. This is an issue that I brought up on August 24th and described
the fact that the problem came from the "namespaces" property. No one
reacted on the list. I am glad I am not alone with this problem. I don't
seem to have any problem with "namespaces" set to true but since it was
hardwired to false, I wanted to know why exactly and what are the
consequences of changing it to true.

I asked Jason more details about his answer and he told me that I should
ask Brett about this (which what I did yesterday) since he (Jason)
doesn't use schemas.
