As of "xterm-kitty", there was a reason why this name was picked. At
this moment ecosystem around terminal emulators accumulated a lot of
assumptions: if $TERM = "xterm-*", then do something for various
comparability reasons. Kovid, you have some examples, right? Thomas,
maybe you have some ideas how to keep this compatibility, if
xterm-kitty terminfo name is changed.

Last question about Su/Tc/setrgbb/setrgbf. I'm not entirely common
with terminfo syntax and don't know how these capabilities are
essential. Nor I'm aware how of their history with ncurses. But maybe
we can omit them from xterm-kitty definition for inclusion in terminfo

this would allow Kovid to distribute full featured terminfo with

While researching last topic I found than nvim uses mentioned
capabilities, but also is able to construct them in case they are
