With all of that out of the way, I could see your idea being useful for
forwarding/redirecting from one Action to another.

I also tend to use forwards as a way of configuring in one place all the
urls that get rendered in various anchor tags etc in the view...

Have you considered a parameter/properties style interface to this?

 		ActionForward homeForward = mapping.findForward("welcome");
 		homeForward.setParameter("pid", pageSrno);

Nobody really likes messing around with query strings.

Btw, passing a parameter to a JSP like this almost always implies that the
JSP contains more code that it ought to in an "MVC" application. You also
said you were concerned about losing your beans when you do a redirect; but
you really have no business redirecting to a JSP anyhow. If you can redirect
to a JSP and have it work, that further implies too much logic in that JSP.

With all of that out of the way, I could see your idea being useful for
forwarding/redirecting from one Action to another.
