[Python-3000] xml.etree.ElementTree and PEP 8

I wonder why the ElementTree modules in Py3k's xml.etree still do not follow
PEP8 naming (ok, besides the obvious explanation that no-one renamed them so
far). Was there a decision that they should keep their name despite the
general push towards a uniformly named standard library? Or would it be ok to
rename them for the next beta?
Given the fact that most packages that depend on ET already use more than one
try-except import for these modules anyway (and likely a separate module that
cares for the right import), I don't see the situation becoming any worse by
making them PEP8 compliant.
