Nameplates are the "clickable" health bars. They can't be messed with in combat from insecure code.
You are correct, I have my addons mixed up, however protected nameplates are a relatively "recent" change (3.x something?)

There were several addons that did auto-combat show/hide nameplates (the actual nameplates not the names) and cycle but my memory failed me as to the names.
ShowNameplates() ShowFriendNameplates() and their Hide* counterparts from end of vanilla to some time in WotLK were part of the API and unprotected)
Then they were moved to CVars and eventually protected *.
