One point to make it one, because of all nested tags are extends tags
from different taglibs and use its own internal logic, common for all
nested tags. And another point is a little question about adding of
"nested logic" to the existing tags against of new taglib creation.
Can it be done?

I think that it is not good idea to copy/paste existing doc - make a
ref to the existing tag docs.
