I think it's a reasonable approach in theory. Practically I don't
think the maintainer would be ok to maintain two prefixes (one for
MELPA, one for ELPA) or willing to rename it because so many packages
depends on it.

I guess if one day we have namespaces or if it's easy to write a tool
that takes the existing s.el and rename it automatically to
clojure-string then we could automate it in ELPA under a different
name, but then I'm not sure that anyone would use it in ELPA except to
"try it out".

Yes it starts with `s-`.
