I've been tinkering with changing namespaces lately, changing the numerical
index for an existing namespace for avoiding conflict with namespaces used
by certain extensions
(http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension_namespace_registration ). I found
the namespace implementation quite robust and haven't encountered any
problems yet after the changes.
AFAIK the only place in the database where references to the namespace of a
given page are stored is the respective field in the "page" table which you
might even change directly.
