We have libraries that use QuickBook+Doxygen (I'm a maintainer of at
least two), so you're definitely not alone. At least, in Boost.Log I
have multiple nested namespaces, and I don't remember having a problem
of symbols not documented in the nested namespaces. That said, I haven't
built the docs locally for some time, so maybe something got broken...
