I have noticed that in every theme I have examined from the Gallery and elsewhere, the Zone Names from the Theme Machine are used, sometimes when the Zone names make little sense.

Are there any internal dependencies that make use of those Zone names necessary or recommended.

Are there any consequences or difficulties introduced if those Zone names are changed?

Except for a couple of head and tails zones that are used to register scripts and stylesheets, no, the zones can be named however you like. Theme authors just like to use the zone names from the theme machine because this way a site can switch themes more easily without losing its widgets.
