I personally think bringing JASPIC to the Web Profile is not a big deal
since, as have been said, all mayor plain Servlet Containers already do
that, and even the Servlet spec has been talking about explicitly requiring

JACC is another story, but then, JSR 375 can work without it so that's not
a problem at all.

So big +1 from me on adding JSR 375 to the web profile, even if that needs
to also pull JASPIC.

Interestingly, JAX-RS is not part of the Web Profile.
