When I read "native", I think of native (binary) code. So "native
coroutine" sounds like it's implemented in some compiled low-level
language. That might be the case (certainly in the CPython world), but it's
not related to this PEP nor its set of examples.

Well, it doesn't hurt to avoid obvious misleading terminology upfront.

I think "obvious[ly] misleading" is too strong, nobody is trying to mislead anybody, we just have different associations with the same word. Given the feedback I'd call "native coroutine" suboptimal (even though I proposed it myself) and I am now in favor of using "async function".
