To my knowledge, there has been no conversation on the topic.
But, it'd be great to start one :-).

Besides the obvious performance gains, having agressive tag reuse 
in tomcat would also be great for taglibs testing purposes.
Properly handling 'release()' in a tag can be tricky and bugs will only
show up when a tag is run in a container that supports 'tag reuse'.
