Serhiy Storchaka <storchaka+cpython at gmail.com> added the comment:

I think tkinter is a valid exception. It provides the enormous number of names (mostly constants like RIGHT or VERTICAL) which are convenient to use without prefix.

PEP 8 is a style guide for the code of the stdlib. Its suggestions are not mandatory for a user code.
