Right. Or I imagine that there could be a PlasmaAppletView class or similar
that can be used in a small launcher executable
// create app

Not in this case. Aaron mentioned that the stand-alone case might need some
extras like menu support.

I guess is was mostly a question of UI technology being used. However, this
becomes less and less a separation factor. An application core that was
designed for QML based UI can be used unchanged in a widget UI, QtQuick UI,
Plasma UI, BB10/Cascades UI, etc.
The videos of the talks of this year's Qt DevDays will hopefully be uploaded
soon, Tobias König and I demonstrated that with a simple app, using widgets
and BB10/Cascades as the two UIs :)
