[Standards-JIG] JEP-0163: payload type vs. namespace

I'm a bit uncomfortable with principle #3 of JEP-0163 (PEP), which
states that there is one node per namespace. I think it's more accurate
to say that there is one node per payload type. This matters because we
could potentially use the same namespace for different payload types.
For example, the Atom format could be used for blog updates, new
releases, and who knows what else. But then it seems that perhaps we
need a registry of payload types?
