I am curious: has anyone found, tested, and used a word as an alternative to
"namespace" in the user-facing view of more general consumer applications
(i.e. for not-definite-technical-audiences)? I see that a number of wiki's
use the term in the default interface, for example. It is definitionally
correct, but not particularly clear, friendly, or pleasant.

For reference, here is a definition:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Namespace

Yes, (I am aware that) synonyms are evident there. "Context" seems
reasonable, for example. I nonetheless am interested in instances that are
actually in production.

Thanks in advance for any contributions.
