i couldn't agree more.

i don't even seen why it matters what the definition of "prime" is
for this.  irrespective of what a prime number is, "1" is a factor
of "1" in all cases.  so "factor 1" is well defined and should
produce a reasonable result.

factor prints prime factors normally because those are useful, but
they are not the *only* factors that exist.

please make factor print factors again, even if there are no actual
prime factors involved.
