According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_standoff,

  A "Mexican standoff" is a confrontation in which no strategy exists
  that allows any party to achieve victory.

I don't think we are in that situation here, because several exit
strategies exist:

 . you can disregard my opinion and go with Stefan's
 . you can disregard Stefan's opinion and go with mine
 . we can still try reaching some compromise (from my POV I'd like to
   understand better why renaming "Code" would be a problem; the fact
   that it's present in every ELisp file doesn't seem to explain that)

I don't think there's disagreement about the essence of your proposal,
that's why we are not talking about it.
