For 3.4/5/6, I agree this is a documentation issue, where the data files need to be given a *non*-namespaced directory to live in. However, it's worth explicitly noting that subpackages of namespace packages can themselves be regular packages, so one possible solution is to do:

    pkg_util.get_data('my_namespace.my_package_data', 'resourcename')

rather than storing the data directly at the namespace level.
