All uses of it need full qualification. Again, exported names from a method
declaration with a namespace-name have an implied namespace block wrapping

In brief, yes.

Yes. I see no other way to not drastically break with namespace convention
and also preserve the core purpose of this proposal.
If we modify the qualification requirements, I think it will cause even
more confusion and make a relatively simple proposal much less
