There's no specific problem right now, this is just a general thing.  
Just like if you wanted to create a new thread class, I'd advise against 
naming it KThread and putting it in the global namespace since there's a 
fair chance that such might conflict someday with a KDE class.  If, for 
instance, you guys have an extension in your source called TagLib::Foo, 
and eventually Foo becomes supported in TagLib, it will conflict with 
your version.  Whereas if you guys put your extension in the 
Amarok::TagLib::Foo, then it would actually work.
