Why is this the whole movie

I personally don't agree with paying money for a game that you can only play online in the browser unless there's a very good reason to make you do it. If it's, say, an MMO or something like Kind Words that depends on user generated content to do what it does, I think it makes sense. But usually, the expectation that I have as a player when I buy a game from here is that I get a copy to format shift as I please and store for as long as I like. So if there's a way to do this that disrupts this as little as possible for me personally, I think I could get behind it.
In short, I tend to think of and prefer Itch as a "DRM-free" store, and allowing developers to sell browser games without a download link might get rid of that quality for me.
I think a good compromise that would make the DRM-free camp happy could be bringing the desktop client's browser game download functionality over to the web client for paid games.
