OK, I think I've bought your point.

Can we specify the interval in seconds then, or what was the reason
to specify it in ms? Do you think a JSP could change that frequently?
When you specify a value <1000ms, you might as well specify -1.

Also, we should add this option to the documentation of the
JspServlet init params in the default web.xml.
