I'm more worried about the convenience of using prefixes in M-x
to complete command names used several times every day.

For instance, there are no keybindings for customization commands, and
`M-x cus TAB' used to complete to `customize', but now this is not easy
to do after `custom-theme-visit-theme' with the shorter prefix `custom'
now is exposed to the list of commands.  This problem can be solved by using
the capitalized prefix `Custom-' like for other similar internal commands of
Customization UI.
