I"m not sure I understand what about the fix you think is incorrect.  I 
could use a little more specific explanation.

In particular, why would you have to or want to use facelets 1.1.x in 
this case?  The spec says nothing other than that facelets in JSF 2.0 is 
backwards compatible and that "such an application must *NOT *continue 
to bundle the facelets jar".  If you're talking about bundling the 
facelets jar, then you really are getting into the territory of 

The way I read section 10.1.2 is that we should only be disabling the 
facelets VDL is if javax.faces.DISABLE_FACELET_JSF_VIEWHANDLER is set to 
true.  Just because the faces-config version is 1.2, doesn't mean that 
facelets stops being integrated if you're on a 2.0 runtime.

Also, as mentioned in my previous comment, it is my understanding that 
the version number in a config file is only to be used for schema 
validation (e.g. determining which resources can be defined and such) 
and that it is not supposed to be used to determine the behavior of the 
runtime beyond that.  I'm going to get in touch with one of our members 
of the EE group to get his take on it to be sure though.

In the meantime, I'll temporarily back out the change until we can 
resolve this.
