so that we can easily change the UI, have multiple UIs, combine it with other 
features in future .. all without touching the business logic code, which is 
often the parts that are the most tricky, easiest to share and need to change 
the least over time.

as opposed to an icon in the system tray? because plasmoids can (and do) live 
there too. (battery, network, etc)

rather, if you're trying to avoid running a plasma shell (plasma-desktop, 
etc), that's not particularly the use case we're developing for. 

however, with core/UI separation, you could easily write an alternative UI 
without much effort.
