https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/glossary/ defines "namespace" as "The canonical name for a collection or index in MongoDB. ". However, the code review comments for
SERVER-41365 have this note:
> even though we're in _dropView, the user did not
> necessarily intend to drop a view. If the namespace does not exist, then we
> cannot know if the intent was to drop a view or collection. I've renamed the

It sounds like a namespace can also refer to a view, not just to a collection or an index.
If so, the definition of "namespace" in the glossary should be updated accordingly.
