This is not a contrdition it is a correct statement. Forrest does not 
force the URL space to be the same as the development structure. So 
"skin/" can be mapped to anywhere that is accessible to the computer 
(including a remote resource). In the default setting it is mapped to 
the FORREST_HOME/webapp/skins.

Why do this? There are many reasons. One is the fact that not all 
developers would want to work with an English project structure. The URL 
snippet "skin/foo" may be mapped to "pelle/bar", for example (I believe 
pelle is Italian for skin).

Your other points have been addressed by Thorsten.
