I think that the part of VelocityTools for Tiles is more connected to
Tiles than to Velocity. If you think about Struts 2, the FreeMarker
integration is just inside Struts 2 itself (I think it's a module,
correct me if I am wrong).
I agree that JSP will remain the base for all development, but since
David made a great work on removing the dependencies between the
view/template technology and the rendering, the porting to Velocity
and FreeMarker will be easy (at least for Velocity/Freemarker experts
:-) ) and, I suppose, the best place to put integration code is inside
a Tiles module. You just have not a "JSPTools" for Struts :-)

Just my 2 eurocents
