The remote deployment is via the deployment APIs of a running server, whereas the local deployment is a file copy to a deployment directory. I'm hesitant to introduce another type of container in Arquillian, so perhaps it's just an aspect of a managed container...seems to fit best.

File copies definitely shouldn't go away since otherwise you are dependent on both the server running and the server being accessible to you for remote management calls.

Not something that is guaranteed in todays world - i.e. openshift servers or production servers aren't necessarily accessible for remote operations beyond file copies.
