We can make our living producing the same results in web pages. 
The same up to a point, because in web we can deliver much more than in
5250, and also prettier and more "like people is used to" in modern systems.

Exactly.  When people think this way they rush to abandon 5250.

Yes, 5250 is text based and it is is screen-at-a-time processing.

Maybe if we decided to see what we can actually do with 5250 and apply
some 21st Century design goals to the use of 5250 we might find that
5250 isn't as old and clunky as we think it is?

My go-to example on this is the subfile and scroll bar.  Our email can
be sorted by columns, filtered by columns, and just about everyone
understands how to work with it.  Say "how about sortable and
filterable 5250 subfiles with scroll bars?" and heads around here
explode.  Why?  This is where we make a living and we act as if
18-year old script kiddys know more about how to handle data than we
do.  Why?

why anyone would write a more complex page at a time subfile these
days is
beyond me.

A "load all" with a filter input field is all that should EVER be

No way a user should be asked to scroll through 9999 subfile rows to
get to
the record they are seeking.
