It's damn useful to be able to filter down contributions to a particular 
namespace.  For example, if I know a user has repeatedly violated 
copyrights, I can check all Image:-related edits without needing to wave 
through edits to the other namespaces, to ensure that all his copyvios 
are tracked down and destroyed.
