He explained that embeded components are frankly only used as glorified
screenshots. I strongly agree with him, when you want to edit stuff you
want to edit stuff properly not in a tiny awkward embedded widget.
Using stuff like AbiGimp and having the embedded information update when
you are done. Full embedding is nice but overkill.

I think you might be getting a little ahead of yourself, I expect closer
integration will come in time.

I really cant believe it is that easy considering all the work Rui puts
into having a good RPM spec..
