So, what appears to be happening is consensus that other database back-ends should be used.

What is implied, is that Base does not have the ability to generate from a package, the selected external database of choice.

1. Is this correct?
2. Should it be corrected?
3. When generated, should 'internal' mean in the same folder, 'external' mean somewhere else?

It may be something different if you need to maintain it for running a
huge database that gets a serious load of queries and transactions and
needs to be fault-tolerant, accessible from the "public" Internet etc.
But for "home" or "small business" use cases it's really simple.

Plus: MS Office (Pro) has one, so LibréOffice and relatives
have to have one.
Access is a dangerous heap of junk.
I know of Access users who get their database corrupted roughly every
four weeks on average.

Base looks and feels like a perfectly credible "CRUD" and
reporting frontend for a database. It's just the choice of an embedded
database for storage that's a mistery for me.

At best, it's useless to include HSQL. At worst, it might discredit LO
as a whole.
