> Keys in configuration files should be standardized so that key names reflect the components
they are used in.
> For example:
>    dfs.backup.address should be renamed to dfs.namenode.backup.address 
>    dfs.data.dir   should be renamed to dfs.datanode.data.dir
> This change will impact both hdfs and common sources.
> Following convention is proposed:
> 1. Any key related hdfs should begin with 'dfs'.
> 2. Any key related to namenode, datanode or client should begin with dfs.namenode, dfs.datanode
or dfs.client respectively.
