One of the use case is to include in the attributes a simple link as:
<a href="my request + rql + vid">See all related XXX</a>
The issue with a CtxComponent is that you cannot include it in the
rendering of the attributes or the rendering of the relations. Moreover,
it is a bit complicated if you only want to add a link (in this case, I
rather prefer to define a specific primary view).
