The following behavior was observed and confirmed from the code:

(clj->js :ns/n) => "n"

I believe this is a limitation and the namespace of the keyword should be kept while writing it to string.
The code in core.js does this while handling keywords:

(keyword? x) (name x)

while it should do this (or something similar):

(keyword? x) (str (namespace x) "/" (name x))

a better (working) fix: (keyword? x) (str (if (namespace x) (str (namespace x) "/")) (name x))

I'd be willing to take a patch that allows this behavior to be configured.

Excellent, Niklas I don't see you on the list of contributors, please send in your Contributor Agreement, http://clojure.org/contributing, so we can apply the patch.

I looked more closely at the clj->js source, the system is already customizable. We can't determine ahead of time how you might want to emit keywords and symbols - thus you can extend Keyword and Symbol to IEncodeJS yourself and get the desired behavior.
