comment Remove ugly borders around clickable cross-references and hyperlinks
This is a real solution, otherwise how is the reader supposed to distinguish clickable links from plain text? Thank you

See Herbert answer: will it work with arguments too?

comment What if I use a \def name starting with “if”
I don't get it: I need to change the definition '\def \termName{term translation}` to \@namedef{term-name}{term translation} and change the name it's invoked, right? Will it work with arguments too?

@egreg: no intention to be polemic — get it as a joke ;) — but if someone like python's dad names a document Style Guide I'd definitively get it as... a guide. :)) I agree about different backgrounds but having used both I can't say a LaTeX script is as readable as a python script, however I look at it. Moreover if you have to tweak something to your needs. My humble opinion tho.

You don't see how \command_with_underscore will increase readability over \NEcommand probably because never followed python's creator Guido Van Rossum' Style Guide for Descriptive Names ;) Anyway... LaTeX is all but readability and Python zen. Try this: python -c "import this" | grep -i readability

comment What if I use a \def name starting with “if”
What about a tip to how naming \def names so I can grep them easily with a regexp? C gettext is always aliased as _ that's why I wanted to start terms' name with a underscore...

Ok, got it, I'll switch to camelCase then... Where do I read what is exactly allowed in a \def name?
