WMS in Google Earth: Whose job is it?

Digital Earth Weblog’s final installment of its Google Earth Wishlist is out. Andrew Hallam would like public WMS services to provide more complete and more user friendly metadata for mainstream users, and also have them provide KML files for accessing the data using Google Earth.

But above all he would like Google Earth to have native support for WMS. Given that WMS is not currently aimed at the layman user I’d expect such a feature to be reserved for the Plus version.
