Presumably they would be implemented as module objects,
created automatically at interpreter startup instead of
being loaded from a file.

In which case "built-in module" might be a better term
for them. And their names should start with lower case.

Also you wouldn't need new syntax to get names out of
them, just the existing import machinery:

   from numbers import *
