I would not make the point that this adds too many chars
for `ucs-names' or for `C-x 8 RET'.
I would make the point that we should not be inventing
character names and then associating such inventions with
what has heretofore been a pretty faithful reflection of
the Unicode standard.
There are many different possible uses of `ucs-names'.
It should not be assumed that the only use is to complete
`C-x 8 RET' or that every use of that command or
`ucs-names' will be improved by "loose" matching that
allows names that are not defined by Unicode.
If someone wants a command (or a hash table or other
mapping similar to `ucs-names') that provides and uses
handy non-Unicode names, s?he can easily define it.
And if Emacs itself wants to provide such a command or
such a map-producing function it can do it. But please
do not do this to `ucs-names' or the default behavior
for character insertion (i.e., `C-x 8 RET'). Every such
possible "improvement" of character names for one person
is sure to be a detriment to someone else and other use
cases.
Unicode itself does not define additional LAMDA versions
of character names. `ucs-names' and `C-x 8 RET' should
respect that and faithfully reflect the Unicode standard.
