My preference would be to wait as well.  If for nothing else, to see how 
JSR-311 (RESTful web services) flushes out and whether we should adopt 
some of the structure of the annotations in Struts2.  Has anyone looked 
into this JSR?  I saw a presentation at Sun Tech Days the other day.  I 
just need to find some time to see if it could be adopted to the 
annotations in s2 now :-)
