I'll consider this for a future version of bash.

This isn't necessary; there's no reason to restrict a coproc name to
something stricter than the set of valid executable names.  I suppose
I could see restricting it to the same set of valid names as shell
functions. 

​ok, but I thought along these lines: if the name is not a valid identifier, how are you going to refer by this name to the array with the descriptors? but maybe checking legal_identifier is too much.
