They where kept for backwards compatibility:
"For backwards compatibility, UNO components included in extensions that
shall still work with older OOo versions must continue to use active

As we are prebundling them all, we dont care foe that too much right?

There are examples for active and passive registered extensions in
desktop/test, so indeed it should be possible.

Looks like some part of the "load/save performance test" one could
find in OOos EIS although I remember it mostly to be in Java. Maybe an
early implementation that was rewritten? If it is that, I dont know if
we ever want use that stuff, I dont remember it to reliable/reproducable
-- we sometimes called repeating that test until the result matched the
requirements "rolling dice".

It could however also be a bit of delicious copypasta, because the
VCLTesttool uses a subset of it.

Finally, since the makefile.mk of the dir is not in the build.lst I
assume it to be not even build. Thus: Maybe it is just long dead code
that can simply be removed?

Best Regards,
