I'm entirely in agreement with this. You say "an element HAS-A gi", so
this is obviously an attribute of the object (as all names are
ultimately.... a rose by any other name...).
I was surprised to get no reaction when I asserted that aplha-renaming
is *precisely* what I think namespace do... but this is one large part
of the reasoning.
