WS TM lookups are, to me, the epitome of what should get moved ;)
And the point is not that "it is a pain to test and maintain"; the point is

Do you really think having the classes in one jar or another will make them
any less popular or usable?
IMO, the thing that is being missed here is the ideal of open-source, which is
that someone with a stake in these WS TM lookups steps up and maintains it.
