[OWASP-ESAPI] Question about .NET ESAPI namespaces

I didn't move the reference implementation to its own namespace. I  
didn't exactly mirror the ESAPI Java implementation in other ways as  
well, but it's pretty close. The reason for this is that the .NET  
version mirrored the older Java version, and I never switched over to  
the new structure (partially because I couldn't see the reasoning  
behind the move)

I can't see anything wrong with the namespaces as is, other than they  
don't exactly match the Java version. Do you see something about the  
current .NET structure that will impede usage, or is it simply a  
syntatic/organizational thing?
