It would be hubris to think anyone would consider changing anything just
because I make a suggestion.  There are very smart people working on
the spec with far more experience with Web applications than I have.
I'm sure ASF members like Jason Hunter and Jon Stevens have pushed for
changes long before any of us became aware of problems.  My guess is that
the reasons certain parts of the spec are recommendations instead of
requirements are more political than technical.

Someone on tomcat-dev may be able to explain why the class loading
behavior is only recommended and not required, but the folks on the
Servlet JSR expert group always seem to be under a gag order.
