Which is very likely as initially the apache set of components are going to be small in number
and would be used with other spark or mx components.

It not bad as such. I just thought it would be nice not to have to specify those lines of
code over again in multiple files in a single project. It something that bugs me a little.

> What is "a" for?  An Apache version of FX?  Sorry to be naïve.
New apache components. Neither fx or mx nor sparc. Doesn't have to be "a" as you can name
name spaces anything, "as" and "asf" have also been suggested.

Previous discussion around name spaces concluded to put all new components into an name space
while they can be worked on before decided if they should go into the spark or mx space or
a new name space. 

It has been decided that having real URLs in as the namespace is a good idea.

It hasn't been decided if we should just have a apache namespace and a temporary name space
or just use a single namespace for both. ie components will stay in the apache namespace if
they don't fit in with spark or mx once it been decided they are good enough.

Was also suggested that we have a namespace for incubation and for after we graduate (so the
URLs are correct and point somewhere real).

It's also suggested an apache mx name space and spark name space but there seems a little
resistance to that.

Hopefully I've got all that correct.
