I never used AppEngine so I apologies for not knowing the quotas and
what impact could DI have.

Not having tried Roo, I can only talk about what's visible in the
and what I understand from Roo's addon-gwt source code:
And I don't see DI here (on the server-side)

Sure. I maintain what I said though: DI is a pattern that makes code
easier to test and to maintain. And I really mean DI, as a pattern,
I'm not talking about any tool here; you're free to implement DI
"yourself", it doesn't necessarily means Guice or Spring or JavaEE 6
or whatever (which means you could do it with very low overhead, if
any). I found DI really improved software quality overall.
That being said, let me paraphrase you: "I am open minder. We
developers have to be :) and as such I would very
much like to be proven wrong on all these counts."

Sorry, I'm not a native English speaker/writer, so I probably misuse
