Eclipse WTP missing in Pulse Catalog

If you use pulse to manage your local eclipse installation (if not, you should check it out) the Galileo profiles are slightly different from Ganymede.

Previously you could add WTP to your profile. But now, WTP is no longer listed in the catalog and there is no way to add it to a profile. Instead, you must start with the Java EE profile (which BTW also brings in Mylyn and Data Tools). I learnt this the hard way, after I browsed through the catalog and installed my custom profile and later found out that the HTML editor was missing!
