I almost arrived at the same point, thanks a lot for pinpointing the
exact revision!

It looks like the admin console (or the "JSF templating" system) may
have depended on a bug then. The problem was that in some
circumstances #{component} could be overridden and in some others not.
This appeared contrary to the spec. Practically it also introduced an
incompatibility between Mojarra and MyFaces, since in MyFaces it was
not possible to sometimes override.

Let's see how to best proceed from here.

Kind regards,
Arjan Tijms
