Actually, I always thought that taglibs were the "good part" of JSPs.  It
is the fact that you can code Java in them that makes them dangerous.  If
one can control what tag libraries are available and not allow java code
in the template then SOC is possible.  Of course, a tag library that
allows you to code a select statement as a parameter would be awful, but
you can't control everything in life.
