I wonder why people always want a full running JSF environment for each 
and every page.
If there is an exception it might be due to a problem in JSF itself 
which might make it impossible to show any error page at all.
Not that you can not handle such situations (revert to default error 
handling), but it makes things complicated.

As long as it does not break other things and is fully optional with 
non-intrusive by default I am -0 adding such a feature.
