I agree the namespace info should be human-readable.  Maybe the best solution
is to require BDB  storage as stated in the OBDA spec, and modify the spec to
(optionally) allow adding human-readable data to config.dat.  

Might be something to bring up at BOSC, to see how other OBDA implementations
in other Bio* langs are doing this.
