It seems renaming is best way forward. However,

The CEDET package has been in existence for over a decade and probably
has long names for quite a while and yet no complaint has been made to
its developers in that time. It seems premature to shorten the file
names now. And the DOS folks most likely already have their solutions to
what CEDET is trying to offer.

Short names such as hilit for highlight create language noise. It
appears to be a proper word but it is not.
