Registered watcher objects are plain objects with a few convenience methods and properties. These objects can only be obtained via the
.watchers.addmethod (for the time being), and all watcher management is done through the interface they provide. If watcher management (e.g pausing, resuming, removing, updating) is required by an application, they should be saved in the app's state.
