Since you complained that no-one responded substantively to your
proposal; here's such a response, I hope.
The proposal seems to leave out the most important part - What Would We
Use A "Community namespace" for? It seems like this should be at least
suggested, in a proposal suggesting creating one... It claims "three
usages", but none of them are actually uses - they are rebuttals to
objections. What are we to *use* it for?

There are three usages for a Community namespace:

why it's being rebutted.
* a template namespace would also be redundant since
templates can be kept as subpages to a wikipedia userbox template.
namespace? The current namespace called "Template" has
obvious use - it's the way to have templates that don't have a
namespace in front of them. Again, I can't really see what this has to
do with the proposal - I thought this was about a new namespace called
"Community", what does this have to do with templates?
* a category namespace would separate the use of the
namespace for content, while still allowing for quick access to
particular subpage templates
Huh? Wait, now the proposal is to create a category
than the one we already have)? I thought it was to create a namespace
called "Community" (for what, it is never said). Where is this
category stuff coming from?
If I were to speculate, I would think this had to something to do with
Userboxes, but due to the complete lack of any statements about what
this "Community" namespace would be used for, I can't really tell what.
