Embedded WMS services within map service mxd's.

At AGS 10.0x I have a map service that has an embedded WMS service in it.  The reason for this is because the WMS service is in a projection different than my data and other map services.  I put it in an mxd, re-project on the fly, and publish as a map service in the appropriate projection.

Now, at 10.1, I can't publish a map service with any embedded layers that happen to be map/wms services themselves.

I understand the performance issues in doing the whole embedded map service thing but at this point, doing that is the only way I can get certain data feeds into my web apps.

I thought I heard that "there is a workaround" for this at the UC this summer.  Is anyone aware of what it might be?

Conversely, I'm trying to get weather radar data from this site to overlay my map services, which are in state plane.  Does anyone know of a way to do that?

Thanks much,
