I've never been particularly receptive to that line of thinking. Who's
to say that our chosen prefixes won't conflict with user functions?
Requiring some unlikely prefix for all future additions to the Emacs
core is too burdensome a requirement.

Then again, I thought we should merge cl-lib without the cl- prefix, but
I lost that one.
