Namespace divides are designed with application-level separation in
mind. Sharing a file across namespaces does not make a whole lot of

own availability (if thats really a concern), so I don't see why
anyone would like to _maintain_ two synced copies of files as thats
just data duplication when all you need is a simple path (viewfs)/URI
(hdfs) to access a file lying on a different NN.
The reason you mention of metadata availability doesn't sound logical
- in such a case a person has to build a self failover of URIs for
said file, which they can simply avoid by using HDFS HA for the
