Section 2 can go: this is not a specification, and the listed notational conventions are not used AFAICS.

Setting text alignment to 'Justified' helps readablitity

Otherwise, the document looks good, and informational, to me. I did not read it in full detail though.

Master node seems to be the single point of failure. Since master only acts as a load balance node, it's easy to deploy a multi-node based master nodes set, and the single point of failure seems not a big problem.

It's useful to me, and I'm eager to know whether the author has implemented this system.

Actually, the namespace service can be built on 1 master and several slaves, there provides a fault-tolerant mechanism for slaves, but if master down, a master election policy will be carried out. A simple policy for election can be random, roundrobin or load-balanced. It's mature technologies, couldn't be a big problem

Nice simple document. Captures a very simple use of RNS.

Section 1. 'can not' --> cannot

Section 3. Master node section. 'Master node doesn't store' --> 'Master node The master node doesn't store'
