Note, that you still have to preserve compatibility for the webapps
that adhere to Servlet 2.5 and earlier versions of specification.

Using JspC may be limited to Servlet 3.0+ ones (if it is worth it),
but just deploying earlier versions of the webapps on Tomcat should
still work.

Do you really need @WebServlet here? Are the jsp servlets discovered
though annotations, or do you list them in web-fragment.xml ?
