The keyword “static” is being used to ask for what C++ calls “internal linkage” <http://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/language/storage_duration <http://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/language/storage_duration>>.

So we could even consider “internal” in those cases, unless we can come up with even better words.
