While I share some of your concerns (even worse: without understanding
what data one throws, there is no chance to meaningfully interpret the
results), I know among deep learning folks there are knowledgeable
people, including e.g. some which converted to DL after decades of
developing other approaches to vision problems.

Back to the point, end-to-end approaches are well worth attention, even
though not modular. They seem to be able to find patterns in the coupled
sub-problems to solve the combined problem better or more efficiently
than if explicitly factorized and modeled separately.
