Their names are fine, but perhaps they should be interned in a different

The closest we have (and there's no change on the horizon, AFAIK) is
prefixes, which is why I suggested "math-e".

math-e is short and understandable, fits well with a maybe-future structured namespace. No one has suggested a shorter name (expect for e of course ...). Those who want can easily define e themselves.

I see no reason not to change e to math-e. Except that it may be rather hard to find and replace the current uses of e ... ;-)
