I think one of the reasons was: RESTful server/interface does not always
require a "web-ui", especially since it was mainly created to serve mobile

Instead of throwing the 'inherited' web-ui away, there was talks to have it
separate. This would also allow one to deployed on a different machine (if
there was a need for a web-ui). Dan worked on CORS for that.

If that makes things easier, I am for it - I don't have a strong feeling on
that one.

It's a client, similar to the mobile apps. The payload posted from both,
mobile (e.g. iOS) and the web-app, go eventually against the 'backend
server' for persistence.
However the deployment environment is slightly different - yes. The iOS
demo needs a mobile device as its 'container', while the web-ui needs a
JavaEE/Web container.

I think this is very similar to our old [TODO app], which had two WAR files
as well. One is 'server.war', the other is the 'client.war' (containing the
JS and HTML files).
