I understand your reaction, in particular with the examples above.
But from own experience I have an argument in favor of less strict
I coded a lot in a macro language, which had similar naming
conventions as Pascal. In one revision they were lifted and examples
like the above became possible, but not used as expected. However,
some things were used a lot:
Names starting with a number and using "-" instead of "_".
Based on this examples from practice, I would suggest to consider it
