The `<package>-' naming convention also plays nicely with other things like `custom-unlispify-remove-prefixes', for example. And it is recommended in (info "(elisp) Coding Conventions").

Commands aren't custom variables.

I was referring to the part that says: "You should choose a short word to distinguish your program from other Lisp programs. The names of all global symbols in your program, that is the names of variables, constants, and functions, should begin with that chosen prefix."

So, I also have the same question as Ted: when is there a good reason to not follow the `<package>-' naming convention?

One was stated in the OP.

Got it, thanks, I didn't know about the list- namespace, and I couldn't find anything about in the documentation. Perhaps it should be added.
