A namespace defined over several assemblies and visual studio projects?

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if it is advisable (or even possible) to define a namespace
across 2 or more assemblies?

For example, consider the namespace SampleApplication.Data.Providers

Would it be possible to have assembly A define a class as part of that namespace
as well as Assembly B also declaring a class to be within it as well?

In particular, I have a number of data providers. It would be useful (I think)
to declare them in the same namespace, but for the purposes of a demonstration
I'm doing, each provider must exisit in its own seperately deployed assembly.

Is this possible and is it a good idea?

Thanks to anyone who can share some advice! :-)

Kindest Regards
