It buys clean SoC: Virtual components then *are* components, and are not 
distinguishable from the rest of components (and I regard this as one of 
the top features  VPCs can have :-)), and sitemap works with VPCs as 
with regular components, without any assumptions or hacks.

Ok, I won't cry if VPCs will support views, one way or another... But, I 
don't think it should be showstopper if view processing with labels 
within VPCs will be too hard to implement.
