Wine provides a "wineconsole" command ready to use to execute text-mode
programs. It would be nice if the Debian package shipped that executable

It's possible to use this feature already but it requires some hackery like this:
$ wine /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wine/wine/wineconsole.exe.so myprogram.exe

Given that this varies between amd64 and i386, it would be much easier
for the end user to be able to rely on a proper /usr/bin/wineconsole
