If existing implementations already do this, I see no reason to bump
the namespace. In fact, this would be counterproductive as it would
basically just be requiring each client to advertise both :0 and :1 or
break compatibility. Since the upgrade wouldn't break any
compatibility, no namespace bump is necessary (IMO).

Thanks for doing an annual review; I think this is a great idea, and
if it's not documented as a requirement somewhere it should be! I've
added this to my calendar so that I remember to do it in years to come
