I saw it, but it was a bit ambiguous.

A better guideline *might* be "if the *command* PACKAGE-list or
PACKAGE-list-foo is in the core, loaded by default, and accessible
through the menubar; and it brings up a standalone buffer listing
objects with which the user can interact; it should have a
`list-PACKAGE` or `list-foo' alias also loaded by default." This is
less ambiguous. It could even be checked by a style checker. We can
discuss the exact wording but I hope you see what I mean.
