I'm not aware of any technical reason either. It is a personal
preference, I think it makes the packages have a cleaner naming scheme.

Accordingly, I have never pushed for it to be a requirement that _ not
be used when upstream uses it in its naming, but if the PHP SIG asked
for us to amend the PHP naming guidelines to exclude it, I would
consider it.
