Yes I would say they are mostly legacy for existing plugins. They stil
have a few advantages:
 . in process, which allows saving some memory and prevents having daemons
mostly UI-less still link against GTK to present their status icon
 . possibility to select which one to show from the
 . unified interface with other hildon desktop plugins.
