I know where you're coming from. It's not really necessary.

I think the core reason is that IRAD is primarily a J2EE development environment, and not wrapping a war file up in an ear throws off a bunch of the validators and editors.

The EAR that is created is innocuous, so don't let it bug you. All that's really important is the war file that you deploy.
