In some cases Doxygen requires the namespace to be documented for the document to be processed.

As per the C# language specifications Appendix A, XML documentation comments are not valid on namespaces. If XML documentation is generated (via the project settings) warnings will be generated on build if an XML comment is on a namespace. However, these comments are required for Doxygen to process the document.

Confirmed. I'll change doxygen such that also undocumented namespaces are extracted in case of C# code.
