Let's imagine that pg_xlog is named wal instead. How does that help our user with the disk space problem? Does that point to a path of resolution? I don't see it. What do we think that user's next move will be? After all, WAL means Write Ahead *Log*.
If, they look it up (which they would likely have to) they will see it isn't removable. :D That is the point I am making. If it is called xlog the brain says "logs". If it says wal the brain says, "What is wal?"
At that point they have to look it up and then if they still delete it; well that is what emergency rates are for :P
