So, if this were added to 'collections' too, the documentation should
be moved there, and the 'types' documentation could mention this
somehow and recommend using collections.

Heck, if it gets another alias, why not give it another name too:
collections.ComplicatedNamespace ;-)

My main objection to putting SimpleNamespace in collections is that we
might want something even better in collections, perhaps
