Anyway to reply to OP,
I concur, you have made it harder for people that are experienced or learning using tools such as Composer or an autoloader or striving towards the standards based by the community to easily use Mojangs Service.

And I hope they rarely see it again.
Fair enough, good job with your OO approach.
