They are supposed to offer a bit more than some abstraction layers and nice CSS...
For example, they offer tables that load on demand (dynamic loading when scrolling),
something that isn't supported by GWT out of the box, if I am not mistaken.
Idem for asynch trees, tree-tables, etc.
Perhaps you can find them as open-source projects (not sure) but then you have to search
for them, choose one (if you have choice!), integrate in your project, ensure the look of
the new widgets are consistent with the others, etc.

I would say that such framework might not be necessary for simple projects (ie. with
simple needs, no complex widgets, small datasets) but can save time on complex projects.
