In D7 Dries initiated the naming convention, that we don't munge words :)

Could you post a link to a doc page, blog post, or a video of a talk to support this standard? I'm not against it necessarily, it would just take some work and have a few deleterious effects on the module's findability in searches, drush, etc.

Sure Bryan, this is more for core, but I am hoping to see this field in there someday :)

http://drupal.org/coding-standards#naming
"Functions and variables should be named using lowercase, and words should be separated with an underscore."

Found a few mention of it, but I haven't found the one from Dries

This may not hold for Module names though, so do as you like, thought it would be neat to conform.
