I think this is a good decision. Solid is going to have to link to other 
libraries, and without a namespace you could well end up with conflicts  
(e.g. some UPS interface library might have a class called PowerManager, and 
you need to be able to distinguish between them).

Whatever helps you think about it. Beyond a single layer isn't that critical. 
I'd probably just call it PowerManger and NetworkManager, rather than doing a 
second layer.
