not really. 

i like namespaces because it communicates the natural grouping of classes. in 
this case i highly doubt one of the Network classes will end up in the Power 
namespaces upon refactoring.

in clear cut cases such as these it encourages the library writer to think 
about which belongs where as opposed to just adding things here and there 
without thought.

i do like kdecore, kdelibs, etc.. without namespaces: they are generic and 
hard to pin down. but solid? phonon? yeah, namespace away, baby.
