Although I don't think anyone has taken a firm step in this 
direction, I believe we're all in consensus about shifting the 
minimum specs for Struts 1.3 to Servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2.  In so far as 
that's true, then all containers should support the TLD autodiscovery 
features, so I'd say we leave it out of the web.xml and use the 
"official" URI from the TLD files.
