Hi tapio. thats just my prefered method of naming the constants (The same 
way extensions etc. are naming their constants).
 That way I can easily find the TS object that uses that constant.

With a constant like:

"lib.countdown.date = 1142095231"
 ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
 I instantly know that it is used inside my "lib.countdown" object.
