I think it depends. From my perspective, mixing javascript and service
code is not a good thing. They come from different origins and does
quite different job (even if they are connected together)

Moreover virtual media service if far more than the current
implementation. Old functionality is just at least 1/4 of the
possibilities of new service.

This is, of course, my personal insight. There are more competent people
with wider background in OpenBMC to make the final decision.
