Agreed, it's very short-sighted, because "CORE" is not unlikely to
conflict with "core dump files" on certain systems or with "CORE-files"
an OS provides.

Not ATM, but do we have a conflict
on /usr/include/LINUX, /usr/include/LOST+FOUND, or /usr/include/NFS? No.

That's the problem behind of complaints on "generality in file names",
it's a matter of perspective, taste and foresight.
