The elder I am the more tend to think that runtime
performance is the very last issue and communicability
of the design tend to climb up to the first place.
And XML is a special animal as it is defined mainly
for machine to machine communication (I mean it is SGML
without the lightenings targeted for human authors but
made the parsers more complicated).

The "canonical solution" is wrong, jsp:setproperty needs a property
attribute as well. (Q.e.d syntax is tough. It is becoming harder and
harder working from heart or simply I'm too old and my brain does not
serve as needed.) Sorry for that.                             incze
