      Description

      Description

      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
      > message object to Namespace instead.

      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.
