Yep qualify it.  Many schemas usually have some prefix to their schema
entity names.  It makes life easier.

throw new ParserException( "Unable to comprehend exactly what your concern
is can you elaborate?" );

So the only additional storage incurred is from the values of the entries?

Hmmmm let me see ... you have an objectClass defined right? It has some name
like xyz
and you're asking me what the storage cost is when you have 200M xyz entries
in the server
of that objectClass?

You would have used ~1200Mb of disk just to identify those entries as xyz
objects each costing
say 6 bytes because each entry has an objectClass attribute with the value

Does this answer your question?
