As you all know, Java EE 6 introduced the Web Profile.
Its stated target was "developers of modern web applications".

As a web application technology, JAX-RS has received substantial
uptake among developers and the feedback we have received has been
extremely positive.

JAX-RS 2.0 is now well underway with significant enhancements and will
be included as part of Java EE 7.

At this point, we think it is appropriate that JAX-RS be added as a
required component of the Web Profile.
