I kinda know, what namespaces are (e.g. in programming languages, wikis etc…). I am, however, new to content management. So, could someone briefly explain, what namespaces in Alfresco are or where to find information about that concept (the Terminology Guide doesn't describe it). All I could find so far is, that they are implemented as a kind of aspects, right?

To be more specific: Why do we need all the namespaces in a way like that: "/app:company_home/cm:sample_folder"? Why not just "/company_home/sample_folder"?

Thanks in advance,
