This brings up another point I wanted to address but didn't think to at 
the time. It makes sense, since function names are being formalized, to 
also specify how builtin functions are named. Generally it seems pretty 
obvious: use the given name in the spec (following the rules, for 
example, for accessors etc.). But it should probably be stated explicitly.

I was thinking about this while writing the proposal up for the wiki. 
I'll put some time into coming up with ideas on how to do this.
