I think you are bluring the question of a name for the package with
the entirely separate question of whether that package is useful.

Since the package is a text-based browser, you may be right that it
isn't useful for people who are not interested in text-based browsers.
Does it follow that it is of no use, that we should not install it?

That could be so -- I don't have a conclusion -- but name calling
(like "a modern user") doesn't prove it.

To establish a guideline is a good idea.  The way to come up with a
good guideline is based on some examples.  Thus, I think it is useful
to discuss this example and handle it in a good way.  That will get us
started on more general guidelines.
