That's mostly what I meant by "the Wine community is not interested in 
these anymore" (especially in the context of running WineTest daily: 
there's no point since I cannot even submit the results).

I'm not opposed to it but that would mean buying new known legit 
licenses as we cannot reuse the ones of the old TestBot (they don't 
belong to us). So I'm not sure it will happen.

I can confirm that the Win9x VMs have been removed from the old testbot 
at some point: I don't see them in the VM table.
