    I see no better name than `string-match-no-data' because it clearly
    says that it doesn't set match-data according to three words in its name:
    "no", "match", "data".

It doesn't express that message.  You see the message which you
know is intended.

    What about `inhibit-set-match-data'?

That name is suitable, but I hope to find a three-word name
that is also suitable.

    How about string-match-no-match-data? "no-data" is a bit vague, but
    this should be clear.

That name is clear, but I'd rather find a shorter one.
