Also, walsenders count against MaxBackends don't they?  So not showing
them could contribute to confusion about why an installation is hitting
the connection limit.

If we do keep them in the view, I would definitely vote for having them
set their "query" fields to something that shows they're walsenders.
It's awfully late to be doing anything complicated there for 9.6,
but we could just set the query to "walsender" and plan to improve
on that in future releases.
