When the users are system administrators, it's part of their jobs to care.
Same with the package names, really. The end-users/developers might not care
about either, but in that case, it also doesn't hurt to have a prefix.
I would argue that SCL packages don't need a prefix in the package name in
the same way that google-chrome doesn't (appear to) need a prefix to handle
its installation in /opt.
