That argument is purely theoretical, though, since no one has complained
to us of an *actual* collision.  With these utilities having been around
with their current names for more than ten years, I think we've
established sufficient squatter's rights on the names ;-).  No doubt
we'd do it differently if starting in a green field, but we're not
starting in a green field.  There's enough usage precedent now that I
doubt we can ever remove the existing names, which leaves me wondering
what is the point.

There doesn't seem to be anyone but you who feels any attraction to that
concept.  These utilities have a wide enough difference in behavior and
intended usage that ISTM force-fitting them into a single binary would
just increase confusion and difficulty of use.
