As explained by Drew, info.el uses the convention that "normal" commands
start with "info-" and keeps "Info-" for those commands which are
unlikely to be used via `M-x`.

I think there was a similar idea with variables, tho I don't offhand see
what's the specific purpose (maybe for M-x set-variable ?).

So I don't think we should do such a blind renaming.  But OTOH, renaming
a few specific commands might make sense, if there's a good case for
using them from M-x.
