name-space consistency

Slightly apropos the current thread opening discussion of things that
could be done for emacs v28...

Here's an example of an annoying and persistently vexing name-space
inconsistency: to highlight based upon a regexp in a buffer, one uses
functions from package hi-lock (that a lower-case 'i', not an 'ell') and
to highlight the current line within a buffer one uses functions from
package hl-line (that's an 'ell', not a lower-case 'i').

Unless you use both often (or have a memory superior to mine), you're
bound to mis-type hl-lock or hi-line.

Would the project consider aliasing and deprecating one of those
name-spaces? Or breaking backward-compatibility and just refactoring
