OK, I've reviewed the docs for the jsp:include directive (I must have
misunderstood it). However, it does seem a lot more heavyweight than the
implementation I have. In particular, it would appear that it would have
to re-dispatch an entirely new HTTP request, including re-parsing all of
the parameters, headers, environment variables, etc. The component
system, on the other hand, is little more than a simple subroutine call.
Since we're trying to build a very high performance server here (i.e.
millions of users), I don't think I would have gone with the jsp:include
facility even if I'd known about it...

This ("static inclusion")  is true of the <%@ include file="..." %>
directive, but it is not true for the <jsp:include page="..." /> action.
For the latter, the inclusion is processed at runtime.  You can include
output from a different JSP page, or from a servlet, in a manner very
similar to your component inclusion description.
