The risk is that renaming increases the confusion instead of fixing it. And I had forgotten that we already have Object.getPrototypeOf(), but that should largely be replaced by __proto__ in the future.

But I think it’s worth it to at least try to improve things. At the moment, it is difficult to talk about, without confusing people.
