Makes sense, but keep in mind that in contrast to some other "super popular"  LSP
packages Eglot provides very few of these.  Only 10 currently.  I intend to keep this
set minimal, maybe even remove some (but not right away).

One of the points of bringing Eglot into core is that it can be used as
a library by other major modes, who are free to build on top of Eglot's API.  Thus
language server support becomes somewhat transparent (according to Stefan's
recent definition): users don't need to know -- to some reasonable extent -- that Eglot
as an LSP client is being used, just as they needn't know that tree-sitter is being
used to provide, say, a better C++ mode.
