Indeed, I mentioned this in the bug report relating to EL in dynamic 
attributes. This bug report I think was wrongfully marked as a 
duplicate. While the original problem was indeed related to using EL in 
dynamic attributes too, the specific problem here is that escaping EL 
doesn't work either. I merely tried escaping EL as a workaround for the 
NPE bug.

So to sum up, I think we have two seperate bugs here:

1) EL in dynamic attributes causes NPE.
2) Escaping of EL doesn't work.

It's a cult. If you've coded for any length of time, you've run across someone from this warped
brotherhood. Their creed: if you can write complicated code, you must be good.
