Plugin compatibility needs to be assessed before we can update. We have seen an issue more than once when a plugin doesn't work well with a newer version of Jenkins or support of a plugin we use heavily is deprecated and so on and so forth. Also the WAR is very useful if you want to wrap the Jenkins instance around an App server like Tomcat or WebLogic or WebSphere. This helps by providing the features of a full fledged app server to a webapp like Jenkins.
