It is a very interesting pattern and there is really two versions of it.
One for XSP/JSP pattern and one for the sitemap pattern. A while back on

  This brings to mind a technology that I've found intriguing

  The basic idea behind supercompilation is avoiding the runtime overhead of
  object composition by optimizing the composition configuration, generating
  it as source code and then using the language's standard compiler (with its
  own optimizations).

  This is pretty close to what C2 does with sitemap compilation!
