View Transitions & frameworks

Curious about View Transitions on the advent of their inclusion behind a flag in Chrome Canary

I'm as stoked as the next developer-whose-job-is-only-tangentially-frontend-related about the new View Transitions API, but does it feel like the major response is relief that this is the feature that will obviate the use of JavaScript-heavy frontend frameworks?

The excitement for a web that feels like a native application is well-placed, but surely page transition animations aren't the only reason we're loading dumptrucks of JavaScript on dev blogs across the webosphere?
