I was thinking of implementing something (a DefinitionRenderer?) that
evaluates all the definition attributes first, and delivers the results
as request attributes (through a RequestWrapper, and possibly an extra
scope "definition") before calling the definition template.

I think that would cover the "lambda" scenario for mustache (on the
server side), and it would be useful if we want to add caches and
decorators into the tiles framework, too. And we've had users calling
for evaluating the attributes in a specific order.

that part looks easy enough to me:

public class ContextMustacheFactory extends DefaultMustacheFactory {
   private ApplicationContext context;
   public ContextMustacheFactory(ApplicationContext context) {
     this.context = context;

  public Reader getReader(String resourceName) {
    // TODO check for NPEs and actual resourceName syntax
    return new BufferedReader(new
