I don't think it is worth preserving the namespace-free version, and I 
have no idea how to go backwards.  I think setting the correct 
namespace and saving is adequate.  The primary reason for the 
namespace-free stuff is to avoid making people type them in themselves. 
  If we can add them automatically, all the better.

I'd have the issue say that the eclipse stuff should pre-convert the 
plans using SchemaConversionUtils.  We'll find out soon enough what 
needs to change :-)  Is there an easy to find point in the eclipse 
stuff where you know what kind of plan it is and want to convert it?
