Comment (by nacin):

 Valid or not, IDs built off of translations are not stable, so that's a
 no-go. We're not just talking about HTML IDs here. A remove_help_tab()
 would need an ID to be able to grab hold of the tab.

 No one looks at WP and thinks we're an OOP shop. The major selling point
 behind WP_Screen was encapsulation. Not just namespacing. There are huge
 benefits to being able to hide internal components from plugins, including
 the avoidance of globals.
