Sure you can do this.

I suggest to always use the last segment as identifier (what you did 
already), because it makes it easier to find the namespace (without 
scrolling to top). But there are no fixed rules for this yet.

As Jigal said, you can use all classes inside the namespace without the 
namespace prefix.
