What's the difference between a package and a namespace?

As far as I understand, UML doesn't specify such a thing as a 'namespace'. Am I wrong?

On the other hand, PlantUML allows two ways of grouping things. One is namespaces on a class diagram, the other is a package/component diagram.

Why was such a decision chosen? I have recently learned about allow_mixing, which, I believe, would allow me to put classes into packages, but would it be standard UML?
