We are currently looking to migrate our Alfresco platform from 3.2 to 4.0
As part of this upgrade we are looking to perform a tidy-up of a custom content model that was deployed with 3.2

The original namespace that was used for the custom content model is not accurate and we would like to update it to a more suitable name. For example

existing namespace               http://www.misleadingname.com/model/content/1.0

preferred namespace             http://www.correctname.com/model/content/1.0

Is it possible to do this or would we have to create a new version of any existing node so that the new node with have the correct namespace? We don't want to have to do this as we would then lose the version history, tags etc. that were attached to the original node. (This information could be copied across as well but it would mean allot more work which we are hoping to avoid…)
