That's an interesting finding that should be explored further.
Namespaces (packages?) are basically ignored in JSDT, as they don't
really exist in JS. There are bound to be a few quirks from JSDT's
heritage, however, in working with them, but these are areas we're
keen on fixing. If you can provide more detailed information in a
bug report, I'd like to pursue this further.

You're not going to like this, but the answer for now is no. The
support you found was written to a two-year old draft version of the
spec, and hasn't received a lot of attention since then.
