I think I ran into this as well and I think that this suggestion would work nicely.

Subject: Use cases of resolver force mode

I have a filesystem resolver which should be forced in some chains, but
not in others.   If I understand correctly, the current design as of RC1
would require me to define a duplicate resolver and change the force
attribute in order to accomplish this.

Isn't it correct that force behavior is meaningful only when the
resolver is part of a chain?  If that is true, then doesn't it make more
sense to assign it as an attribute of a resolver reference in a chain,
like this example:

<chain name="rc" returnFirst="false">
        <resolver ref="final-fs"/>
        <resolver ref="rc-fs" force="true"/>

<chain name="local" returnFirst="false">
        <resolver ref="final-fs"/>
        <resolver ref="rc-fs"/>
        <resolver ref="local-fs" force="true">

This gives much more flexibility in defining chain behavior.  Does
anyone else agree, or is there some use case I've overlooked?
