I think what Dennis meant by "dead end" is the import to TMG from UFT. I
don't think he's bashing UFT or its users, but saying that when UFT went
orphan and users switched to TMG, once that was done, the need for
exporting/importing Witness/Role ended.

(Theoretically, there may still be UFT users out there who have not
switched to TMG but someday will. In that sense, Dennis would be "wrong"
about "dead end".)

You're absolutely right that "any software developer could add the
features...". The fact, though, is that they haven't. Therefore, there
remains no place to put the Witness/Role, etc., data even if it could be
exported from TMG. So in that context also, exporting that data from TMG
is also a dead end.
