Éric Araujo added the comment:

I think like Ezio does.  Python covers itself by saying that all names starting and ending with two underscores are reserved, and documents those that are interesting for users.  On the other hand, many third-party frameworks/libs/apps invent their own __names__ (often for metadata, sometimes for custom protocols); I don’t know if a full list of existing names in the doc would have dissuaded them.
