Any suggestion on how to avoid a situation of having a core update that adds a new post type keep from breaking any sites, themes and plugins that happen to use the same obvious name?  

Maybe the answer is, "Let it happen."  Okay if so, just thinking it would be nice for it to be explicit as opposed to by happenstance.
