I agree. The meanings of the namespaces are already well defined and 
understood. If we create new app names then we will need to define what 
those names mean in a normative way. We might even have to define what 
particular combinations of namespaces and app names mean! App names 
would seem to add complexity. I'm not convinced they add value that is 
worth the pain.
