Currently I know of five and union.cms doing it. I'm certainly 
considering doing so for Silva. Then there's the example of many 
packages in the Zope 3 core which are actually quite independent from 
the core itself, such as the email package, and may in the future become 
Zope extensions.

I'd say adding a namespace is a common method for abstracting 
application specific component configuration tasks. I also don't see 
what's bad about it and why we'd like to discourage it.
