In short.

This is not my use case, but is also possible by my previous fix.

Because I use the adapters also for normal webservices. I dont want to 
have extra String->Something adapters.

Here is my example, which I wanted to contribute to CXF, which simulates 
a "old" webservice by REST calls, and which require my desired behavior 
of XMLAdapters concerning REST. Would be nice if you include this in trunk.
