I could be missing something here, but I don't see a differentiation in
the WebConfiguration between values that come into the system via
<context-param> elements and those that come into the system via
<init-param> elements. This code in WebConfiguration is an example:

    public String getInitParameter(WebContextInitParameter param) {

        return contextParameters.get(param);


These two elements have different meanings. Shouldn't that be reflected
in the WebConfiguration API?
