  Ya, thats a fun one.  I figured that MIGHT be the reason for doing that, but 
I'm not sure using a namespace with 1 b instead of 2 is a good solution.  Hack 
solution, for sure, but whos gonna remember that peculiarity years down the 
road..  I'd almost want to say use something like the above, or 
simply "storage:avatar" or "data:avatar".
