That's one of the reasons I didn't want JSF as part of the Web Profile,
but it's
too late now.

I still say that a minimal profile with just the servlet container is not
platform. There's no value in defining a platform that has next to
in it. You basically can't count on anything being there and you are
into building your own server or bundling everything in the app.

The only reasonable chance we have to solve the integration problem has
to include modularity in the architecture. I've been saying this for
releases now and we are yet again putting it off.

I'm not interested in a minimal profile hack.
