Definitely namecoin needs name trading.
a Bonus for doing it (i sent this in a PM probably a while back):
When this is done (with a GUI), it should be very simple to modify it for "Share type Trading" using actual names (so it is very basic/simple and easy to understand):
This is an example based on crypto-currency type shares (and was some late night fantasy
We would like to sell 1000 chronoking shares at 100 NMC each, when Chronokings is released, 1 Chronoking Share will = 500 CHR (Chronos).
We create 1000 names:--- sh/chronokings1 to sh/chronokings1000 .(i mentioned this to someone else and they suggested sh/chronokings/1 etc)
We also create sh/chronokings - which has some values like "total shares" and maybe contact/contract details.
The names are then listed for sale in the "Name Trading Client" (or a new tab in current QT) - possibly in "shares tab" - which allows grouping of names based on sh/chronokings values, but uses the same atomic trading for trading names.
Investors then buy the shares at the fixed price, and can also trade them in the names or shares tab, maybe the shares themselves will go up/down in value.
When Chronokings is released, they create a CHR address to receive coins and update their shares name in namecoin (sh/chronokings/43) with their chronokings address.
they then transfer the name (share) to our specified address to cash them in.. we then send the CHR to their address. (alternatively, they can actually be shares in a company, i.e. %)
That is just an example of a use.
Share Atomic Name Trading (?) -
Name trading itself will boost namecoin via speculation for names
Share Trading will boost namecoin, as the shares are traded in NMC.
Apologise I have not much input on the technical side
