I don't understand in which context would "www-browser-alternatives"
or "browse-web-alternatives" be used. For which commands are these
options? www-browser and/or browse-web?

I'm low on bikesheding. I choose one name knowing full well someone
would complain. I don't have any preference. Your proposal suits me as
