Good List. Curious to hear why you call these backend web frameworks and not just web frameworks.
As soon as I see backend frameworks, I expected to some forms of spring boot but then realized these are all pointing to web frameworks.

I generally think of any framework that enables me to create an API among other things a backend framework vs frontend frameworks I generally think UI Frameworks Like React/Angular, Component Frameworks like Shoelace, or CSS Frameworks like Bootstrap/Materialize.
