This particular feature I've always felt is YAGNI. AFAIK we don't have a 
single use-case for this right now .. so why don't we introduce a flag 
"cloneHandlerChain" which is false by default and we document it and tell 
people to set a parameter (globally or in services.xml) to set it if they 
want the thing cloned.
