I don't care for that only because the privacy isn't enforced and because the name has to be doctored to avoid the keyword. OTOH, perhaps you could submit that as a feature request for the next version of the standard. That is, suggest that "namespace private detail" be like an unnamed namespace, but with the facilities offered by a named namespace (scope resolution, using declarations, etc.).
