The way I see it is that Emacs should come with something reasonable out

Agreed: html-mode should default to be an alias for "the most popular
html mode that comes with Emacs".  That doesn't mean that the canonical
name of that mod should be `html-mode`.

Why not call it selected-html-mode or something? Isn't the most important thing to just have it in auto-mode-alist for *.html files out of the box? Also, if the function name doesn't end with "-mode", people won't try to derive from it, which is good because derived-mode-p doesn't handle aliases.

Not a huge concern, but it would make life a bit easier for mmm-mode and polymode if html-mode remainted the same as html-basic-mode.
