They're also available through PlayOnLinux. Do you want to open the AppDB to test reports using POL? If no, what is the rationale for keeping them out if test reports for patched versions are allowed? If yes, what about all the other third party apps out there? 

BTW, I'm not necessarily arguing against this. I'm more concerned with practicalities than philosophy, and it would make my job easier if POL et. al. could simply be treated as distros (WineSkin users already keep trying to add it as a distro). But does anyone really want to go down that road?
