http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Using_custom_namespaces#Why_you_would_want_a_custom_namespace
  A custom namespace can be used to hold content that should not be shown
  on the search results page.

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefault
  Note that changing these values in LocalSettings.php only affects newly
  created and anonymous users - it does not change the settings for existing
  users.

That sounds rather cumbersome. My feeling is that MediaWiki namespaces
are not meant to be used for separating main content, but only for
separating secondary pages like in the technical support example.

Are you sure you want this?
