[ros-users] naming of cameras

In the current version of the experimental camera1394 driver, the node
name is the same as the camera name. The output is published as
/<node>/camera/image_raw (for compatibility with other image pipeline
drivers) with frame ID "/<node>".

Looking at the wge100 camera driver I see that its node name is always
wge100_node, and it publishes camera/image_raw. Different cameras are
distinguished by running the node in different namespaces. The frame
ID is set by a parameter.

Are these differences OK? What naming issues influenced to the wge100 approach?
