Suppose someone has the brilliant idea to have:


and that lang1/parser.y has %prefix "lang1", likewise
for lang2/parser.y, then if we smash both YY_LANG1_PARSER_H
and YY_LANG2_PARSER_H to YY__PARSER_H, we lose.  Unless
I have misunderstood your suggestion.

Frank has a point on _INCLUDED too, this way, since there
is little chance that we ever introduce a YY_*_INCLUDED macro,
we should be completely safe.
