As a client maintainer, I have no particular problem with the status quo
(apparently like Greg and Cyril), but I can appreciate the point made in
Jeroen's initial post in this thread, and I would not object to changing
PREPARE to be transactional while leaving Parse messages alone. Nor do I
have a problem with "PREPARE OR REPLACE".

But for what it's worth, I strongly dislike the later proposal of making
prepared statements anonymous, and pattern matching the statement text,
especially if they reintroduce the need to quote query parameters.
