Why is default WoW bottle Win2k?

I noticed that the default WoW Bottle is a Win2k Bottle. Is there a technical reason to keep it as a Win2k bottle? With the new battle.net launcher Blizzard has rolled out, all their games can be installed and run from one launcher. While WoW will still install in the Win2k Bottle with the new Battle.net launcher Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 won't install. I was able to install the Battle.net launcher in a WinXP Bottle and inside that single Bottle I was able to install World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3. All work fine. Can crossover change the default bottle for WoW so players will be able to manage all their blizzard games in a single bottle or is there a technical reason to have all three games in different bottles that I am missing?

You're missing nothing. We just haven't circled back to World of Warcraft to update it's installation method (because independently it works fine...).

You certainly have a point. It's next on my list. :)
