personally I prefer singletons but sometimes users like dealing with
prototypes because it makes it easier for them
to deal with synchronization issues.

By the way, it is likely the prototype scope was ignored by CXF. Probably
starting from 2.2.9 prototypes are properly
supported in that lifecycle methods such as init and destroy will also be
called (at the moment only if @PostCreate and @PreDestroy annotations are
used), please see :
