If you do `export namespace X { stuff }`, this makes this particular
namespace declaration an *export-declaration*. This means that the
declarations in "stuff" are all within an *export-declaration*. This
means that all declarations within "stuff" satisfy
[module.interface]/2.1. Therefore, all such declarations are
implicitly exported.

It's essentially shorthand for `export {namespace X{ stuff } }`.
