Ours too.  This work was done in close cooperation with the spec writers.  What
you see is a bit of implementation based on the direction that it is felt that
the spec is heading.  This is generally healty when discussed openly and not
taken to extreme - as long as the commitment is there to immediatly conform when
the spec 'catches up'.

As you say, a spec issue.

One thing we feel is important long term is the ability to mix languages on a
page.  Just because you want to put a little Perl logic on a web page shouldn't
preclude you from handling Java, should it?

This is the current set of objects made available to scripts in our

    javax.servlet.ServletRequest   request;
    javax.servlet.ServletResponse  response;
    javax.servlet.jsp.PageContext  pageContext;
    javax.servlet.http.HttpSession session;
    javax.servlet.ServletContext   application;
    javax.servlet.jsp.JspWriter    out;
    javax.servlet.ServletConfig    config;
    java.lang.Object               page;
    java.lang.Throwable            exception;

I'm not aware of any other special assumptions on the generated bean.
