Inconsistencies in showing page TSconfig in Info module
TYPO3 backend => Info => Page TSconfig
1. Consistent naming in the select list (see #94322)
2. (?) Remove "Module: Web > Modules" - as a module "Modules" no longer exists (#94324
3. Same order in results for "all" as order in select list (if "sort alphabetically" is not checked)
4. Use the same naming scheme and order in the documentation: https://docs.typo3.org/m/typo3/reference-tsconfig/master/en-us/PageTsconfig/Mod.html#

- Module [mod]
- Module: Web > Page [mod.web_layout]
- Module: Web > View [mod.web_view]

to be done: find a nice descriptive representation for "TCEMAIN", "TCEFORM" ...
I am using the `[...]` style of putting the technical representation in brackets as that is already customary for e.g. page ids, page fields, fields in Flexform etc. in the Backend forms.
In the select list, there is a mixture of showing the objects in
1. their technical representation as they are used in TSConfig, e.g. "TCEMAIN"
2. in a full plaintext representation, e.g. "Module: Web>Page"
3. and a mixture , e.g. " "Module key (mod) with overruling user settings"
Should be done consistently, IMHO.
Also, the sorting in the results for "all" should then be the same sorting as in the select list.
What I find important is that you can look at the list and then find this info in the documentation (and vice versa), maybe even have the docs page open while you go through the list.
When I look at "Module: Web>Page" I find this confusing. This is "mod.web_layout". I think it is done to point out where this applies and this is good, but you need both information. Here, the technical representation is missing, which also makes it difficult to use the option.
You don't know all the options by heart and things are still a little muddled. You configured the Backend Layouts and now want to check in Info => Page TSConfig.
Where is it? You don't know. You can look at "all" and then find it (with CTRL+f) but then you still don't know where it is in the select list the next time you need it (unless you already clicked and "got" the relation "Web > Page = "web_layout").
If you do got directly to "Module: Web> Page" in the select list, you do not see the missing piece "web_layout" but you need it to define, e.g.
This can make it error prone and confusing.
