I'm curious why and in what sense "url" and "wpurl" are preferred.
Just grepping lines, it looks like there are about 10 times as many
references to 'siteurl' as 'wpurl' in trunk, so it doesn't seem to be
a matter of common practice, at least in the core.

I agree.  Even someone who knows nothing about web development knows
what a site's "home" is, but "url" could refer to anything.

How about "wp_home_url" and "wp_dir_url"?
