True, but that's not really a problem with the choice of names. The fact of
having named files in a directory that are actually links to the directory
and its parent necessarily gives rise to such a hazard unless you put
special-case magic in globbing to exclude them from wildcard matches, in
which case it doesn't really matter what names are picked for them as long as
they're standard. Specifying a wildcard that doesn't catch them is no harder
with the current names, the problem is remembering to do it.
