Yes, and I'm not saying we should change things, but we need to be clear:
gnulib infringes both on the implementation space (via _GL_...) and on
the application space (via _gl_...).  We could easily modify gnulib
to infringe on just one space, or just on the other; but we've chosen
to put a plague on both houses.  :-)
