No. Since the introduction of JSR88 then vendor dd can be external to 
the module being deployed.  If you are going to open the ear to modify 
something, editing the ejb-links would be easier.

If the module fails to deploy, which would happen in the case of an 
unresolved ejb-ref, there would be nothing to manage on the server.
