We often duplicate the effort of the container. Actions duplicate 
servlets. Modules duplicate multiple applications.

In each of these cases, the effect of the container feature is the same, 
but the justification has always been "it more lightweight".

*If someone wanted to write it*, I don't see that a composable request 
processor would have to be a 2.x change. The major changes could all 
take place within the process method, and the original RequestProcessor 
could remain available.

Things like the DTD may have to be expanded, but it would not be 
anything more radical than what we did between 1.0 and 1.1. [As if 
that's a good justification for anything =:0)]
