i think that it's important to differentiate between the declared type
and the created object.
for example, i would never write:

HashMap<String, WorkspaceInfo> wspInfos = Maps.newHashMap();


Map<String, WorkspaceInfo> wspInfos = Maps.newHashMap();

sure, if this would be in the jdk, i would use it (because everyone
else would use it too).
i think we should first focus of cleaning up the code by replacing
untyped collections and integer enums.
