Yeah I think it's a pretty even match up.  This article is great for comparison:

The reason EMF does this is to make it easy to follow the "Separate the Interface From Implementation"
design pattern.  EMF uses this pattern in the .edit and .editor plugins that it generates
also.  It may be worth while to take into consideration whether this pattern means anything
in the context of server development.  If it becomes desirable to generate the .edit and .editor
plugins for Studio, then it becomes meaningful by default.
