I like capfile(5) as a man page name.
I tended to think that, too. However, we would have to patch

Btw, when evaluating files-to-patch, for ->terminfo(5) vs.
->capfile/newtermcap(5), I found a third case - referring to a
termcap entry in another OS's /etc/termcap via "termcap(5)".
I haven't yet decided what do do with that one.
Since our terminfo implementation still supports termcap files,
perhaps we should have both a capfile(5) to describe the generic
format and point to cgetent(3), and a termcap(5) to describe the
termcap-specific features and property names, or at least to act a
pointer to such a description in terminfo(5).
