That information is there to make sure that the transformer which
converts sbcl packages to source and ecl packages works properly.  If
it's not being used, then there's no need to follow it.  Even when it is
being used, it's always possible to manually override the name of the
final package - the convention is only there to make package name
transformation automatic.  So if it's more desirable in a given
situation to use a non-conforming name, there's nothing that will
prevent you from doing so.

Hoping that helps,
