It wasn't just me; quite a few people were dubious about it when the
patch was submitted. See the thread here:

AFAICS the only argument for doing this is to eliminate confusion and
potential conflicts, which means that we get no benefit at all until we
actually do remove the old names. So if we're going to do this, we have
to make a commitment that we're going to remove the old names within the
reasonably foreseeable future (say, about two releases out).
Are we really prepared to break everyone's scripts for this?
