Class or an object of a class? Even that is not great. Colonized
namespaces can contain property values from different classes of objects
in a single document yes? To me as an SGMLer, a colonized document
*looks like* an SGML document with multiple doctype statements.

I call them aggregates but I think of that from a process point of view.
When I look at a colonized file, I think of weaving together different
document types into an aggregate type, loosely a collection.
A 3D model would help.
