It allows to check that the decorator API is still working. They were 
not in the image for some time and they got very out of sync with other 
parts of the code, so I had to spend time bringing them back to life 
again. Since Clemens is doing changes to this API again, I'd rather 
make sure things don't break again. And apparently the only way to make 
sure is to make BOM slap the breakers :)

Once the API is frozen, it will be fine to remove them and make an 
optional package (without having to update it every other day).
