We've been (with JBoss Modules and thus our various application server
offerings) using module name conventions that match package names for
several years, and the number of people who have actually been confused
by it to my knowledge is exactly zero.
The actual problem is probably quite overstated. People just don't seem
to have trouble with this (nor do people generally seem to get confused
by, for example, a C++ library name being the same as the root C++
namespace used by that library, to draw another language equivalent).
