Yah, the JSP spec's description of PageContext.handlePageException() is not very
helpful in the included/forwarded scenario.  It would seem to me that you'd want to
throw IOException or ServletException (assuming that there is no error page defined)
under any circumstance -- included/forwarded or not -- so that the servlet container
would handle this problem for JSP pages just like it does for servlets.

 I'll forward a comment suggesting this clarification to the spec lead
(  It will need to get discussed by the JSR-053 expert
