 This sentence of yours is the quintessence of what makes the trail
 of this PR so puzzling, at least as far as I'm concerned.
 In addition, initially you reported the use of implementation-reserved
 identifier names in headers which would be part of the implementation
 (of POSIX, to be fair); subsequently you suggested a list of header
 files which are for the most part private to the respective
 applications or libraries residing in the same leaves of the source
 tree.  The former isn't a bug; the latter has a different scope
 and would be an issue only to those attempting to turn those
 directories' contents into conforming applications.
 Please submit issues (included fixes are appreciated, too) in new
 problem reports, or take further discussion to one of our tech
 lists; the bug database isn't the right place for this.
