Moving the filter from web deployer to cxf deployer will have no
effect on your app. The application will always end up with the same
filter in either setup. It will only work ok, if the filter is in
cxf-deployer *and* if you use Tomcat or configure Axis2 as the JAX-WS
engine. So moving the filter is better but it's definitely not a fool
proof solution.

Maybe for now we should remove the filtering from web deployers and
let each application configure the Spring filtering if necessary.
