The namespaces specification leaves the relationship anomalous by
providing no clear answer about the association.  While its non-answer
and my proposal should work effectively the same in practice, that
notion doesn't appear to go down well with people who are happier with
specifications as written.

I'm always happier to err on the side of the explicit.
