[p2-dev] Namespaces and classifiers

A RequiredCapability has a 'namespace' and an ArtifactKey has a 'classifier'. I want to build on P2 concepts when designing the next generation of Buckminster tooling and I'm trying to understand how to best map our current concepts to P2. As far as I've been able to understand so far, I see some overlap between 'namespace' and 'classifier' in that both are used as discriminators. I'm trying to understand how to use them correctly. Where can I find more reading about the thoughts behind 'namespace' versus 'classifier'? Is there some canonical definition of them?
