Remember, a continuation is only created when you ask for one.  
Typically, that means when you call Form'showForm() or 
cocoon.sendPageAndWait() (which is called from (Form'showForm()).  
(That's using flowscript as an example... not sure how it looks in 
javaflow, but it'd be the same idea).

If you just invoke a flow that ends with (in flowscript) 
cocoon.sendPage, no continuation is created.

If you are using continuations, then it's for a stateful interaction, 
but then you'd have no more concern about scalability than you would 
doing it any other server-side way using a traditional 
(non-continuation-oriented) framework, e.g. using session variables...
