John,

Although there are a few objects in QSYS2 that follow the AS/400
naming convention (start with a Q followed by the component identifier
of the development team) QSYS2 is historically for all those objects
which did not follow the AS/400 naming convention, and therefore were
not "allowed" into QSYS but were part of OS/400.  These are primarily
cross system interfaces (SAA APIs, DB2 tables/views, etc.) where
changing the names to Qxxx would defeat the whole idea of cross
platform portability.

There have, over time, been a few exceptions allowed for QSYS and
non-Q object names (like SUBRxx for S/36) but that doesn't change the
original reason for QSYS2.
