I tried but cannot work. Currently javac cannot union same classes in 
same paths ;) Maven says I pick first found class (i.e. cannot pick 
union of classes).

With thanks to Ɓukasz, he pointed out a good thing, abstraction by a 
plugin. I thought more and saw reflection maybe makes core somehow 
rough-and-tumble. Now I'm going to go with a plugin named 
struts-servlet3-plugin. I'll improve the core side-by-side when needed 
but carefully I'll keep modularity. The positive point is in future we 
are able to import further supports of Servlet3 into that plugin :)
