What do you want me to say, Simon? 

That Foo Corp's representative gave a 30 minute dissertation on why we
should have three namespaces, that Bar, Inc's representative screamed at
him for another 20 minutes, stomping out before lunch calling him a
pin-head, the rest of us broke out into a scene worthy of the best bar-room
brawl, and the victor was declared three namespaces based on who's clothing
was the most intact at the end?
