I think the clearest name for Eglot is  Parse Code.
That's what all these enhancements have in common.
If you enable the Parse Code feature, various functionalities
will parse code (when possible, when supported, etc.).

There's no need to eliminate the name Eglot.  I think making Parse
Code an alias for it would do the really helpful job.  Its source
files can be mostly unchanged -- but they should explain that the
package is also called Parse Code, and why.

The main change is that Emacs should refer to the package and its
functionality primarily as Parse Code in menus and documentation.
That is how we will get the benefit of that name's clarity.
