The Workbench should sell itself because of its intrinsic utility, NOT because certain vital functions are arbitrarily delegated to run on it! I would be very interested to know how useful people have found the Workbench. I tried to use it, but didn't have the time or patience to learn a wholly different way of working. When I last looked at it, the WB did not even display Mathematica characters - such as \[Breve] - in Unicode form. Maybe I am missing a whole new level of productivity - I would quite like to know!
