Hello Matthias, I think I understand what you're asking but I'm not 100%
certain. Are you saying you'd like us to add a
javax.faces.component.UIRepeat class to the API, which has the behavior
and responsibilities of the class currently called
com.sun.faces.facelets.UIRepeat? I'm certainly not opposed to the idea.
