Description:
In the current portlet specs, there is no capability for mapping ref to link for user attributes
between a portlet and the portal implementation.

In a portlet application, we can specify which user attribute the portlet will use.  For instance:

<user-attribute>
    <description>User Given Name</description>
    <name>user.name.given</name>
</user-attribute>

where user.name.given is the name of the attribute in the portal and the portlet.  But what
if, we want to deploy prebuilt portlets in J2 which leverage user attribute but the portlet
code user is user-name-given instead of user.name.given used by the portal.

It therefore seems to me, that the same way security mapping has a role-name and a role-link,
the same should apply to user attribute.

I am proposing that we leverage jetspeed-portlet.xml to support such a mapping.  If no mapping
is specified then the default behavior takes place, if a mapping is specified in jetspeed-portlet.xml,
J2 will leverage that mapping as a way to map J2 user attributes to the portlet user attribute
(in the example above, user-name-given to user.name.given).
