Regarding: ESC z runs the command zap-to-char:
  Kill up to and including ARG'th occurrence of CHAR.

I'm thinking that more useful would be adding an additional command to
"Kill up to but NOT including CHAR"

Consider the cursor is on the beginning of this line:
House Number Planning</a></H2>
I want to get rid of those three words, but not the
</a></H2>.  None of the commands on Info's Node: Other Kill Commands
can do the job without having being at least told how many words there

The above example shows that often we want to kill characters of set
A, and leave characters of set B... anyway, emacs needs an additional
command like M-z < that wouldn't also eat the <.
