As of JSP 2.0/JSTL 1.1, the Expression Language is owned by the JSP spec.
The above issue as well as support for method invocation in the EL has been 
the center of hot debates in JSR-152 (JSP 2.0).

The tradeoff for JSP 2.0 has been to extend the EL to support declared
functions. See JSP 2.0 Proposed Final Draft 
for more details, and send your comments
to if you'd like to voice your opinion.
