I think the post was not SO inappropriate. The article was only
a rational behind a feature request and offering to bundle a page
generation facility stuff to tomcat (if I interpret correctly):

"Although the WAP approach is not standards-focused, it compliments
the dynamic options of web app environments like Tomcat, JSP or
Velocity. I believe should be available there. The effort is
negligble and I'd be more than happy to do it.
I'd appreciate suggestions as to whether and particularly how to do
so. WAP requires no changes to the substrate; it is strictly a 70kb
addon to the servlet engine substrate."

You can say no, and vote out it. Or commend it into some contrib
stuff (as tomcat 3.3 will rule out every piece that is not strictly
the standard). Tomca tis something like a product that has "standard"
adn "advanced" features right now.                         incze
