Loading MOTD delays JOSM start

The content of the GettingStarted panel (better known as "Message of the day" MOTD) is loaded on every start-up from josm.openstreetmap.de. Loading of the content is done synchronously meaning that the JOSM startup stops until the content has been loaded and parsed (depending on the network connection this takes several seconds).
This is IMHO an unnecessary delay in the JOSM start-up process.
The content should be cached and updated asynchronously on first start-up every day.
