Actually my first sentence was I see your point.  And that was regarding 
the 80/20 rule.

And actually the number of *CMD objects do have a habit of diminishing. 
Try DSPOBJD of QSYS/*ALL *CMD on a few releases to check.  I suppose they 
could remedy that by duping some commands, like they did with the TCP 
commands.

I don't think DSPF/EDTF is like EDLIN.  EDLIN was like the old S/36 SEU - 
line at a time.  Notepad or EDIT are better comparisons.

I've come to really like the IFS commands.  For example if I wanted to 
change the authority of every object in a library I would have to write a 
program to do so.  But with the IFS commands I can do
CHGAUT OBJ('/qsys.lib/mylib.lib/*.pgm')
       USER(*PUBLIC) 
       DTAAUT(*AUTL) 
       OBJAUT(*NONE) 
It's gotten to the point that I'll use the IFS commands even if I am 
changing one object.  Might as well be consistent.
