Why are the latest widgets like google maps obfuscated?

Previously widget developers could easily extend the widgets or create new widget based on them, recent widgets like Google Maps are obfuscated. Why is that?   Can the webmodeler part of the widget be documented? Why is that part needed, could n't that be integrated in one widget?

The source code is still available on GitHub: see here

The newer widgets are built using TypeScript and webpacked for production. So while the MPK files themselves are webpacked/minified, you can still grab the code from GitHub, modify at will, and rebuild. There's also a development guide here.

Agreed on the web modeler documentation - I'd like to have that too!
