I have been supporting the idea of basing the Configuration interface on 
java.util.Map for quite some time, that's why I filed Bug 26102 to start 
the convergence of the 2 interfaces but there was no urgent need to 
implement the Map interface. This EL use case is an interesting argument 
to push toward this change, but I'm not sure it will work well once we 
address the issue of hierarchical configurations.
