JBoss 7 uses GWT for admin console

I've been looking into upgrading our web app from the ancient JBoss 4.2.3 to JBoss 7. I noticed in the admin guide for JBoss 7, it says:

"The web interface is a GWT application that uses the HTTP management API to configure a management domain or standalone server."

It seems strange they wouldn't use JBoss technology like Seam and RichFaces to build their console. Is this a repudiation of their own frameworks?

Apart from this mailing list discussion, there was one other thread where I remember this was explained. I just can't seem to locate that thread now.
