Depends on your perspective.

Some people would say, they don't want the pages themselves to have
power.  Common thought these days is to make the pages -- or any other
component -- as dumb as possible.  They should know just enough to do
their job, which in the case of a page is usually, "make the pretty
HTML." =)

I don't see what's stopping you from doing this..?   WAR-external content
is nothing new.  People are regularly advised to do this if their content
(say, dynamically-served images) and code (webapp) must vary independently.

What is a "dynamic JSP?"

Please explain.
