You seem to be saying that the user namespace is not useful, but not
harmful either.  I agree that tightening the rules on the userspaces
would have essentially the same effect as getting rid of them, though.

As for it being a complete mess, I think it'd probably be less of a
mess.  Instead of having similar notes being spread among hundreds of
user pages, it'd be contained to just one project page.
