if you permit me to chime it:

Sure ;)

thingatpt.el does a special thing in a special way. The moved commands
are not related so far, didn't belong there.

Whether those commands belong to thingatpt.el is historical. I don't
care much; it has been there for a long time and nobody complains.

When studying thingatpt.el years ago it was not helpful, was distracting to 
read that mixed stuff.
But you are right, didn't complain. Just being here now :)

But moving them to another wrong place is wrong! Not to mention they are
not generally useful.

IMHO they are, as the very case proves.
Probably it's not really subroutines but general purpose commands - in so far 
there is a point.
