I was talking to Florian Ragwitz (rafl) about this issue, and he
mentioned that they are indeed meant to be used as standalone
applications despite being built on Plack. I think both are
replacement http daemons based on different concepts, but they are
indeed meant to simply replace Apache or Nginx for PSGI applications.
Anyway, in either case, I decided to go for the REJECT anyway to give
us some time to discuss the issues. We may ultimately decide to
re-upload the packages as-is, and I think that's okay. But what this
gives us is an opportunity to discuss it and fix it easily if need be.
