Nope, I told you why, as did other people.

I understand exactly why I'm doing it.

I'm in the same boat - I think the flat namespace is a really really bad
idea and yet no one has actually come up with any good explanations as to
why it is the right way to do things. The only explanation that seems to
keep coming up is that new users find name spaces "difficult" - I am
certainly not in a position to evaluate whether this is the case (although
from my own perspective they are easier), and I don't believe you are in a
position to comment on whether this is actually the case. In fact, the
one relatively inexperienced user who has made a comment in this
discussion seemed to indicate that nameapaces made things easier.
