[Dovecot] namespace public / namespace shared - question

After looking through wiki/config/list I'm still not sure, what exactly 
is the difference between those two. Even all the examples in dovecot's 
wiki don't have a single "namespace shared" anywhere. And there's only 
short mention about the difference in dovecot.conf .

Peeking into rfc2342 - would shared namespace relate to "Other Users' 
Namespace(s)" and public namespace to "Shared Namespace(s)" ?

Does perhaps the difference only lie on the client side, depending on 
the namespace it's asking, while functionally it's the same from the 
perspective of dovecot ?
