A very big +1 to adding JAX-RS to the Web Profile.

I'd also like to suggest a simple Servlet or Basic profile. It would
include servlets, JSP, EL, CDI and JAX-RS. Essentially tomcat / jetty with
CDI and JAX-RS integrated. This would give a very powerful programming
environment (namely CDI and JAX-RS) as a strong base and also allow our
friends developing tomcat and jetty to join in and be a Java EE compliant
server! Oh, and JSF would then run purely in a Java EE environment, no more
"pseudo EE container" aka Servlet container.
