It begs the question why xrefs replaced a 'do the next thing' type

Because it's more useful. The xref UI presents you with all matches right away, and you choose before visiting, so you don't really need the "go next" binding 98% of the time.

There's also 'next-error', which navigates between the matches too.

Iʼm tempted
to say that xref-pop-marker-stack should use a different binding, and
M-, should be fileloop-continue, but the xref one has existed for 5
years now.

Exactly. That ship has sailed. If you are still not convinced, please go ahead and look up the older discussions for our reasoning.
