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.
