BTW, maybe you can convince the other side that users benefit from
more meaningful names.  I would suggest "htedit" or similar.

As far as tex4ht is concerned, I fully agree with Karl.  Not only
because two-letter names are deprecated but also because more
meaningful names are more user-friendly.  But changing it now would
break many workflows.

I suppose that a more meaningful name is a good argument in order to
convince them to change the name.  Most people use GUIs nowadays and
expect meaningful names.

Regards, and good luck,

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
