IMO the action should always be responsible for what's available in the view, but that may
just be me.

I'm still not sure I like the idea of calling *action* code to get the data that you want,
though--I think it would be much cleaner to provide a mechanism for accessing service instances
in the JSP and skip the intermediate layer.

Again, while I don't think this is a good idea, it'd be easy enough to use Codebehind and
the <s:action...> tag to do this, although there are a few potential "gotchas" with
the action tag.

It's better than mine ;)
