Don't take checkdoc too literally.  I for one strongly dislike the
idea of using -flag postfixes, as I've already mentioned somewhere,
among other things because it's not a widely followed convention
and because many boolean variables turn into 3-way (or more) variables
over time.
It's more important to keep the old names than to try to follow some
rarely followed convention.
