I think this is exactly the correct thing to do in this case.
At least no scripts will get the wrong program.

An alternative would be to somehow arrange for "node" to be

  cat >&2 <<END
  use "nodejs" for the Javascript interpreter
  use "nodeax25" for the AX.25 (ham radio) tool

regardless of what's installed, but that's a lot of faff.
