Why wouldn't Cryptic approve and encourage these things? If resources are stretched, what is there to lose from creating a collection of user generated resources which have been vetted by the devs as tools which do not negatively impact performance, the game code, etc?
Whether or not someone believes it should be part of the UI is irrelevant, it's not...

And if resources are stretched do you honestly think the devs will have time to trawl through 3rd party code testing it for compatibility with their own proprietary code?
