I'm not sure how relevant this is in general, but with #36335 shouldn't we at least follow the naming convention for the few class files left?

A quick glance shows

wp-includes/class.wp-dependencies.php -> wp-includes/class-wp-dependencies.php
wp-includes/class.wp-scripts.php -> wp-includes/class-wp-scripts.php
wp-includes/class.wp-styles.php -> wp-includes/class-wp-styles.php

I'm not certain what type of breakage may occur, unless someone is loading these independently of core.

I am generally in favor of this, but I think we should at least scan the .org repository for any plugins including or requiring these files directly. If there are many, we need to properly communicate the change with enough notice.

I think we'd just copy the files using svn (to keep the history) and then require the new ones inside the old files for back compat. That's what was done in the past when classes were moved to other files.
