So that users can make their own methods based on the names list, e.g. 'deleteAllNames()' or similar.

Access to the raw names list wouldn't help that much - you'd still need to do a lot of modifications at a low level to end up with a valid workbook after that I'm not sure what you're missing out on by just calling getNumberOfNames and then iterating over that with getName - could you clarify?

Without a strong use case why, this won't be exposed given that a delete case would still need to update records / formulas / etc
