Comment (by dd32):

 > Thinking we should make it a coding standard to use strings that qualify
 as PHP (and JS) variables names in all these cases.

 Sounds fair, Except that dashes are universally the standard for slugs in
 !WordPress (URL's, Filenames, CSS classes, etc). Underscores are a PHP/JS
 Language construct, which shouldn't make a difference here, as slugs
 should never be hardcoded or expressed as a variable.

 It's a shame that dash was ever sanitized to an underscore really, I still
 can't see a good reason for it in this context.
