Description:
------------
Background:
There is existing special constant, ie `Vendor\Package\ClassName::class`, as per RFC:
https://wiki.php.net/rfc/class_name_scalars

Requested feature:
There could be also namespace constant, which is anyway reserved, ie:

`Vendor\Package\ClassName::namespace` should resolve to string '\Vendor\Package\ClassName'

Pros:
Could be used for any namespace related operation, like registering namespace for some purpose

Cons:
Could interfere with token parsing scripts

Typo, it should be:
`Vendor\Package\ClassName::namespace` should resolve to string '\Vendor\Package'
