IMO, the two strings, `*Shell Command Output*' and
`*Async Shell Command*', deserve variables with their docstrings.

Any rationale why we should add variables for these?
I found nicer use a variable across libraries than repeat the same
string over and over.
I think, having the variable might encourage deeper library devs writing
a function launching a shell command, to use that same output buffer name.

As you see, no strong arguments; I am fine keeping the things as they are ;-)

Who would want to change the names, and why?
I expect no one.

And even if we do provide such variables, I see no need to document
them in the manual.
I agree; I would prefer not mention them in the manual.
