I think based on the consumers described we should keep the flag as
'gs' as this is primarily for ghostscript-based support and not
generic postscript capability.

That said, there's only nine of them, and as I can't see that many
more packages suddenly including support for ghostscript I don't see
that much of a need in making this flag be global...?
