Workbooks in Portal - Preparation for Business Objects product set



my reading of the FAQ for the Business Objects roadmap is that the safest method to position for the future Pioneer product is to discontinue creating Web templates for query presentation and to use workbooks.

It appears to me that BEx Analyser has a straightforward migration path to Pioneer, whereas Web Application Designer is a more complex case, and is recommended to be replaced with VC or XCelsius+. At least that is from today's roadmap, which I am well aware may change.

So, two questions:

1. Does anyone disagree with the above, and if so, why?

2. The current method for constructing iViews to launch workbooks from within the Portal is clumsy - manual build and configuration of the iView - is there / will there be a better way?
