Per we want to revert this change for 3.11 as it causes adoption pain for little benefit.

To determine if we should proceed with this in 3.12 or future versions, run a stable Python with this change applied on the test suites of external projects to find regressions.  (many will have been addressed by then thanks to the work by RedHat)

and remember that those are only open source projects. Peoples internal codebases are full of use of these names and this will prevent upgrading until they take the time to address those.

There are targeted pieces of this change that may make sense to go forward with individually.  But it is easier to reason about after a rollback and consider new PRs to move those forward.
