Subject Re: Trinidad and Tomahawk

EL doesn't allow arguments in which case isUserInRole() checking 
requires the developer to create a managed bean first to then provide 
boolean return values. Though not reflected in the JSF spec, I think 
that providing out-of-the box security always is a benefit. At least 
this way you can ensure it is implemented the est way possible. However, 
this goes beyond implementing security on a single UI Component only but 
requires security to be enabled on the JSF engine.

Just my 2 cents on it
