Would View be a subset of Link, meaning if you have Link, you wouldn't need View? If that's the case, would the advantage with View (other than being a little bit cheaper than Link:) be just that it has a smaller footprint than Link? If memory use and performance is not much different between the two, then I think it may just cause confusion having the two versions available. If there is quite a difference however, then View would have its place.
