>Why not use the anonymous namespace, which actually provides a unique
name for you? It seems simpler to explain, and lets the compiler do the
work of coming up with a unique name (which is guaranteed to work!).
Is there some reason I don't know of not to recommend the anonymous
namespace for this?

We're talking at cross purposes: an anonymous namespace does not solve the
issue: anonymous namespaces are unique for each translation unit, not for
each header included by that translation unit.
