I'll note that completely controlling the dictionary that goes into your 
template is a common pattern in many web frameworks. It enables you to 
write your templates in a more "push" style, where template developers 
are not even tempted to call into funky code paths as they don't have 
access to 'context' or 'view'.

With namespace there's also no risk you overwrite something important on 
your view.

We can't ignore the issue entirely; we need code to set up namespace 
with 'context' and 'request' anyway.
