They sure are legacy! You can think of them more like a macro, when
you use it in a recipe, the body is replaced with the contents of the
definition, with the parameters all obviously available.
I have seen some varied usage of mix-matching definitions and lwrps,
especially when you need to group multiple lwrps togethers. Some might
argue for a purist approach.
