Well, naming it 'module' is a bit confusing.

Right! It was just a working title :-)
I renamed it to:
http://en.opensuse.org/YaST/Web/Docu/Navigation#Link_to_Application-Specific_Web_UI

So this is similar to a normal html 'href' but should open a new
browser tab (resp. window) to make the difference apparent.

Wouldn`t it be more intuitive to run it in the same window as webYaST?

I do not think so because this UI is completely separate from (and
different to) Webyast.

The pros would be:
* consistent behaviour with "How to start a module" (and as the vendor
specific application is visualized similar to other modules it might be hard
for the user to distinguish them from a "real" module)
* simplify navigation and work with webYaST when everything runs in one window
* consistent with the idea of working with one module at the time

We have absolutely no influence on the look and feel or the navigation
properties of the vendor UI. It might even be advisable to pop up a
"you're leaving Webyast" warning (configurable).
