I'm biased since I'm responsible for the `gv` prefix, but just in case:
I fully agree.  Maybe we should discourage short prefixes, but I don't
think there's a need to go and rename existing ones.  Also the fact that
there are very few of them suggests that maybe it's not that important
to explicitly discourage them (other factors already seem to discourage it).
