Well, for people who really want to break stuff, we can implement this
with an option to turn it on. It will be off by default.

But the recommendation still stands: You shalt not mix namespaces.

You will confuse yourself and, if you are a service provider,
reveal phone numbers in signalling that in some cases are supposed
to be hidden. In Sweden, that will even be against regulation.

It took me more than four years to get the patch to accept name  
matching on peers to be accepted and implemented. That's the big,  
huge, issue with kill-the-user in 1.6.1. No more need for users. Use  
peers, be happy.
