Why not use DDS partions for namespaces instead of restricting the topic names?

I think you might be confusing these two things. We want to ban `__` regardless of how we implement it in DDS (we're still using partitions right now), but instead to allow us to unambiguously differentiate a relative topic which starts with `__` and some of our special tokens like `__ns` and `__node`.
