[Standards] One more pubsub question: Name space for Nodes/Items under a Collection Node

In a tree of PubSub nodes, is there a single universal namespace across 
the entire server, or is it okay for two nodes to share the same ID if 
they are stored under different collection nodes?

Here's an example configuration of node IDs, do any of the combinations 
lead to a collision?:

Root Collection P
  Node A
  Sub-Collection X
    Node A
    Node B
  Sub-Collection Y
    Node B
    Node C
    Node D
Root Collection Q
  Node C
  Sub-Collection X
    Node D

This question would also apply to Items which are stored under different 
Nodes but share the same IDs.
