Description:
------------
---
From manual page: https://php.net/language.namespaces.faq
---

There is a list item:
 "Import names cannot conflict with classes defined in the same file".

Given example shows that class defined NOT in the SAME file but in the file that included into main file together with second one. 

This changes the sense of the phrase completely. Cause it CAN and WILL conflict with classed defined in the SAME file(try to move MyClass into file2.php and you'll see)

The description should be something like "Import names cannot conflict with each other" or something like that.

Better description version would be "Import names cannot conflict with aliases existing in the same file"

Here, "cannot" means "are not allowed to". The item says "Import names are not allowed to conflict with classes defined in the same file." Is this clearer?
