There is a price you have to pay for standards.

You should be very carefull with using proprietary APIs - you're code will
no longer be portable, and then I see no reason for using Servlets
anyway, since your code will run only on a particular engine. 

There are many things I don't like in the Servlet API, and it will be very
hard to find someone ( anyone ) that think it is "perfect". 

On the other side, what you want can be implemented in tomcat ( low level)
and will be _very_ usefull for JSP ( or other template engines ). There is
nothing wrong in having a JSP adapter that is specific to tomcat and takes
advantage of Apache-tomcat cache and optimizations. 

It is usefull to have the "caching" API implemented in tomcat, use it on
JSP ( where at least you have a very clear separation between static
and dynamic content).
