In the terminology of the standards, there's only the C implementation and
the application. The term "reserved" draws the borderline between the two

But with gnulib, we have three territories: the C implementation, gnulib,
and the application. From the point of the C implementation, gnulib is
application code. From the point of the application, gnulib is part of the
C implementation. So we have to use a careful pragmatic choice in order
not to conflict with one or the other.
