Matt, thanks much for your excellent summary of the resource provider 
sessions in Barcelona. A couple minor corrections noted below.

Note that the opposite is what was decided: there will be no namespace 
on standard resource classes, but we will be using a CUSTOM_ string 
prefix for any resource classes that are added via the REST API (i.e. 
they are user-created "custom resource classes").

All other resource classes that exist now (or in the future) in the list 
of standard resource classes will have no string prefix.

node.node_class attribute, but yes.
