Absolutely; you've referenced two of those. However, all of this
is implementation namespace.

A standard specifies which identifiers names are reserved for use by
the implementation; see
for one such instance. Other application software, such as 3rd-party
libraries, usually have their own conventions of reserved identifiers
or prefixes (such as possibly g_ in GLib) which are not to be tampered
with by "applications", but as far as implementations are concerned,
all applications are created equal.
