I would entirely agree with you, Karl. It is not an easy task to change the
'ht' command which is called by several scripts, some of which we know,
some we don't. Further to that, thousands of people who use TeX4ht might
have defined custom commands which internally calls ht. So, an improper
change of name can cause instances of terrible breakdown.

As you have rightly pointed out, people should not have chosen two or three
letter names for binaries or the distributions can make necessary changes
