It should be. But it isn't. The site blends two powerful traits dominant in web development.
First, renaming a very standard convention from off the web for no good reason: The Colophon. Next, using that pointless new term in the wrong way -- often the opposite of what the term implies. There's a serviceable term for humans.txt. It's called content.
In the olden days, there used to be something called a Read Me First file. That would seem to give human readers something analogous to robots.txt for humans.
For some topics where a couple of intro paragraphs are not enough, a ReadMeFirst page could be a way to get visitors up to speed on the relevant issues, without leaving the site for research.
Some sites have pages on, for instance, window treatments. They influence shoppers coming to the site just to get a window blind to consider a wider array of products than their initial task calls for. Optional, such pages are different than, say, the idea behind the splash page.
Only in Terminator movies and real life web design does the world go topsy-turvy like this.
