I think adding an __all__ in 3.7 would be reasonable.  You are right that we can't simply rename them for backward compatibility reasons.  We could rename them, and leave a stub function (that calls the renamed function) but issues a deprecation warning.  We've done that for other old internal APIs that we wanted to mark as private elsewhere in the stdlib.  The question is, is it worth the trouble to do it?
