Like you say, JSP can be used to generate responses for all kinds of devices,
and all devices don't understand HTML. So if the JSP container would be
responsible for URL rewriting, it would have to know how to parse and find
URLs in HTML, WML, any XML schema, etc. Using a custom action, like the one
in Struts, it a better solution IMHO.
