w(1), who(1), last(1) and unix philosophy

with this mail I address e-mail-adresses related to the projects GNU
coreutils, util-linux and procps.

it seems to me, that the programs who(1) [belonging to GNU coreutils], w
(1) [belonging to procps] and maybe also last(1) [belonging to
util-linux] are giving out similar output.
Wouldn't it make sense in the spirit of UNIX philosophy to have only one
specialized command with the different capabilities included ??
