Peter et all,

Points well made. Thank you all for replies and comments. However, it is still nice to have an idea of what are the plans to add more contests to the list. To set up people expectations, if you will. 
Or alternative idea - to provide Hams with a tool, which will allow to write or costumize different Contests on their own. Something similar to WriteLog. This will  allow WT developers to concentrate on new features, bug fixing, etc. And I am sure there will be a lot of enthusiasts to help authors with new Contest modules. Free of charge. 
Just an idea. I am relatively new to WT, so I am not sure if it was discussed / agreed on / or rejected ever before.

Thanks and 73,
Paul, RA3ANI

Win-test supports lots of contests.

For the new features. And to provide an encouragement to the authors
to continue supporting a fine product.

And the message wasn't that no new contests would be supported ever,
but that current development priorities are elsewhere. New features
and big re-writes introduce potential instability and it makes all
kind of sense to limit the scope of enhancements for a time whilst the
new bits are bedded in. Good software quality practice in action, once
more, from the WT developers.

But if the product doesn't meet your needs, you're free not to buy it of course.
