No Peter, there should be no need for all sites to run a WMS. We just need enough in the UK to support our own VOs and tests with some redundancy. A lot of jobs running in the UK will have been submitted from WMS elsewhere.

I suspect that more sites would be running a WMS instance if it
wasn't rumoured to be particularly obnoxious to maintain; I
guess that the there is sensible need for the few sites running
a WMS now to get an SL5 version, but also there is probably a
longer term desire to get something more maintainable than WMS.
