I haven't been too successful finding the relevant thread. I remember
Philip Lehman proposed a "poor man's namespace" for packages, but
that's not really the same thing.
What LaTeX3 does currently is to rename all engine primitives to remove
them from the user namespace.
\write -> \tex_write:D
\protected -> \etex_protected:D
\pdfstrcmp -> \pdf_strcmp:D
So as far as LaTeX3 is concerned, it doesn't matter what the primitives
are called :) But that's no help to the problem at hand.
