jsf immediate on action

The reported issue deals with button that submits the form and the text field, where button's immediate == true

I have traced the lifecycle processing within LifecycleImpl.execute, and when immediate is true, it requests lifecycle processing to go to Render_Response ( context.getRenderResponse() == true, line 108)

Why immediate flag on the button   completes the lifecycle processing ? JSF specification says any component can  do that, but it does not specify that action does or must  complete lifecycle processing? I could not find anywhere in the specification where such behavior is described as prescribed....


thank you ,
