So far we have been doing it in Soas with the copy-to-journal script. Of 
course it would be nice to have a simple way for a deployer to 
pre-install content into the Journal. But this is scope of another 
Feature ;p

Ok, if you think of the Journal only in the sense of an action view, 
having pre-installed content in it can be confusing. That is why the 
differentiation of object and action view would make sense, I guess.
