My immediate reaction is that it adds more and more Provides that tools
have to process, making things slower and slower.  It also gets us into
the game of "shortest name wins" once more with these things, but maybe
that's not a problem per se.

Why don't you work up a proposal on the wiki to consolidate all these
things like 'web-server' that you want to change to a more commonly
used server(web), generate a list of all the packages that would have
to be changed both for provides and for Requires, propose a time for
the work to be done, etc..  Treat it almost like a Feature page.
