I could imagine a reason you might want to run/provide both at once...

navigator for the users who don't want the full thing, communicator
for people who do.

I know that when i use communicator, the possibility of opening things
in composer (from the "Open") box does nothing but annoy me.  if it
were possible on a per-user basis to complete disabled (except in
preferences) the non-navigator bits, that's solve the problem.  8-)
