Accessing arbitrary rosparam namespaces in Orocos/RTT

The current rtt_ros_integration (2.5/Electric) only allows RTT components to get/set rosparam params in the namespace corresponding to the name of the component. I could see how this might be desirable to enforce synchronization between rosparam and the component properties, but if I want several components to pull something like an URDF off of the parameter server, it means I need to load it each time. This clutters both the parameter server and launchfiles. Is this a design decision or would a patch be welcomed to enable something like:

As shown on the wiki page ( ), it is possible to load parameters from other places than the /nodename/componentname namespace:

I do have to admit that there is no possibility yet to load it from an arbitrary namespace. A patch to provide this extra functionality is always welcome.
