FWIW, Emacs has been slowly moving towards using the <prefix>-<command>
even for its "core" operations, and I'd be in favor of renaming all the
rectangle commands to rectangle-* (keeping obsolete aliases, obviously).

Part of the motivation for me is that we otherwise look like hypocrites
when we ask package authors to stick to a <prefix>-* naming convention.
