OK, I will try. Let's take the authentication as an example (I know that
some don't like the authentication frameworks which can be used in the
sitemap, but let's forget this for know). The framework is component
based and has to store 'somewhere' the information about the current user
for the request, so I can ask at anytime this component if currently
a user is logged-in for example.

Therefore it makes imho sense to store this information somewhere
in the line request/object model, because these objects are only valid
for the current request.

Does this make sense?
