Sorry, but 

1) Stability policy is great when we hold on to it. If we add new spellings of assert every few years, what kind of stability it is? "My" solution is of the same type: just add one more thing to the API. But that solution is better, because a) it doesn't clash, and b) it must be done only once.

2) Soundex has nothing to do with it. It was invented to mitigate errors when transferring _sounds_ (phonemes) over the telephone wire. It would surprise me very much if those were in any useful sense correlated with errors encountered typing graphemes on the mechanical keyboard.
