An idea I've been having - what if we, as a community, made a combined effort to code dummy AIs

Currently, we have only a handful of bots available in AI games (the ones coded by Blizzard). Obviously, for practicing aim and such, you've got no options for heroes like Pharah, Doomfist, Tracer, etc. because no AI exists for them.

However, since the addition of dummy bots to the Workshop, talented individuals have been coding rudimentary AIs for different heroes ([example]. (https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/cvqg7q/lionarius_pharah_bot_is_pretty_scary/))

What I'm thinking is, what if we got different people from the community to attempt coding AIs in the Workshop for all the heroes that don't currently possess one, and import all of the coding arguments into one big template so that Workshop creators can just import all of that and suddenly have the entire AI roster to choose from for their custom games? They don't have to be perfect, just be able to walk about, shoot, use abilities when they're near enemies, maybe even form up behind Reinhardt shields and such. I think it would be a great addition to the Workshop arsenal and open some new doors for creators to make really interesting new gamemodes.
