A type name matches a .NET Framework namespace names in a case-insensitive comparison.

Type names should not match the names of namespaces that are defined in the .NET Framework class library. Violating this rule can reduce the usability of the library.

Select a type name that does not match the name of a .NET Framework class library namespace.

For new development, no known scenarios occur where you must suppress a warning from this rule. Before you suppress the warning, carefully consider how the users of your library might be confused by the matching name. For shipping libraries, you might have to suppress a warning from this rule.
