It's not that weird. Quoting from "man 5 attr":

  Attribute  names  are  zero-terminated  strings.  The 
  attribute name is always specified in the fully qualified
  namespace.attribute  form,  eg. user.mime_type,
  trusted.md5sum, system.posix_acl_access, or security.selinux.

According to


FreeBSD also requires that arbitrary xattr's be in the user. namespace.

I suspect this should be hidden in the xattr library.
