hi-lock-buffer-mode and hi-lock-mode do not follow normal convention

It seems that much of Emacs follows a convention for naming global minor modes vs buffer local minor modes that hi-lock-mode does not follow. The convention is for buffer local minor modes to be named minor-mode-name and for global minor modes to be named global-minor-mode-name.

I realize that previously hi-lock-mode was the global mode, and you want to keep backward compatibility, but it is confusing to have multiple conventions for the same thing.

Please change the function named hi-lock-mode to global-hi-lock-mode, hi-lock-buffer-mode to hi-lock-mode.

This bit me because I don't like having the H for hi-lock-mode displayed in the mode line, so I added

(setf (second (assoc 'hi-lock-mode minor-mode-alist)) nil)

to my init file.  This just broke.
