Yes - I'll let it cool down for a while.

 From messages here, on talk and on talk-fr, there seem to be a 
consensus about namespace chaining such as sport=boules;boules=bocce. No 
one has offered sport=boules;boules:type=bocce - maybe because the 
boules namespace most probably won't expand into complexity that 
justifies subkeys.
