I'm no fan of "util" classes and static methods either.

I'd be a little more specific in 3 cases:
* RequestUtil goes into o.a.t.r.collection
* ContextResolver was useful with Tiles 2, but I'm not sure it serves a 
purpose anymore. The Request abstraction (with its wrapping mechanisms) 
is just more powerful. Perhaps we can remove it entirely.
* if we remove the ContextResolver, very little remains in 
ApplicationAccess: only the registration of the ApplicationContext 
object within itself (which is awkward, especially since it is used only 
by servlets) and a constant that can be moved to the interface 
ApplicationContext (or perhaps even to o.a.t.r.servlet.ServletUtil: it 
is used only for ServletContexts).
* I like the idea of moving the rest to the top package.

Perhaps we should also take the opportunity to expand the package-level
