This is Antoine's call.  I believe he made the original decision not to sweep through the standard library, changing it everywhere it occurred.  Perhaps this was performance reasons, perhaps the existing code was already clear enough, perhaps the value-add was too low.  For me personally, it is easier to remember 0 than the name of the constant.
