You seem to have ignited a lot of discussion.
Just to add my own point of view: I think removing a restriction on the
allowed names is a generally bad idea. I think Rasmus Bååth gave a
really valid complaint about the variety of naming conventions in R in a
presentation I saw based on his article
Looking at the article now, it's not as entertaining as I remember his
presentation was, but it makes good points about the value of consistency.
