Yes, it's great to have a standard toolkit. It's also totally acceptable
that a single thing exports several task related things at once.

    use Web;

    my $web = Web::Request.new does HTML::Generator;

HTML::Generator can be smart enough to realise that when it's used as a
role to extend Web::Request, it can provide stickiness for form

In fact, if you want to build a newbie friendly thing, just export a
pre-built $web, much like LWP::Simple can export a $ua:

    use Web::Simple  :html :cookies :sessions;

Don't thow out the simplicity, but do severely re-model things!
