The Corda DJVM approach is similar in nature to the Ethereum EVM approach of the previous generation smart contracts. These contracts has to be run by every node (they do try to mask it but it is true) and therefore require metered execution and cannot interface with any external resources. Our lightweight contracts does not have these limitations, their execution is not metered and they can freely interface with external systems, therefore they do need such restrictions.
