It is indeed a reasonable solution; I don't do much heavy duty data 
munging, but I've had decent results using views to back beans which 
model "report rows"; in some cases also I have processes which build 
a reporting table as a sort of an index, and then use that as a 
source for report row beans.  Yes, it involved making objects which 
are otherwise irrelevant to the domain, but it really simplified 
things and avoided the need to move data around between objects and 
some reporting output.

For real heavy duty data crunching, this may not work, but so far 
it's been good for me on two projects.
