The current specification is not implementable for Apache ( or any other 
web server ) - and it breaks every pattern that was used in the web. 

I don't know if we have any representative in the expert group or
what's the procedure that apache follows in voting for JCP specs - 
but if this is not resolved I'll do my best to find out. 

I'm also curious to who is representing apache ( if any ) in the 
JSP spec - I'm still strugling to understand how the TLD stuff
happened and nobody noticed or complained in any way - the whole
'config in web.xml' model is now screwed, with any file ( including
jars ) potentially storing config for web applications.
