There are advantages though - being able to replace the JSP pages with  
something more malleable and potentially overridable.   And it's  
really not that heavy weight.

DIH is one of those contribs that injects itself in for UI purposes,  
and that's kinda ugly.  I think with VrW in core we could extract that  
and plugins could have their own UI in the JAR files (or file system).
