I am happy using the same names in the UI that end up going into the
board file.  Achieving familiarity with those names have value.

It means you can load a *.kicad_pcb or *.kicad_mod file into a text
editor and understand it.

That was the basis of strategy used to write the code in kicad currently.

So again, no.
