Maybe not all that useful, but well defined and easy to define.

We could define that the entire application runs in a single request scope,
which would help JMS 2.0.

We could also define that each event processed by the AWT event dispatch
thread is a separate request scope, but that seems excessive.

I don't understand this one.
