(non-binding, if that matters for this vote :-)

WildcardHelper is not part of a published API, so IMHO anyone that  
depends on it knows that they do so at their own risk.  Alfred says  
it's easy to switch to WildcardMatcherHelper, and if it were really  
true that someone out there is actually relying on bugs of  
WildcardMatcher,  they could always exhume the source code and copy it  
to their own package, and keep using it that way.
