I'd support keeping abortWith(). I do not like style when exceptions are abused in non-exceptional code paths. And IMO from a filter perspective, aborting is not an exceptional code path. That's something very natural to filters.

Instead the user can just throw an exception from the JAX-RS exception hierarchy to abort the request. Its pretty much the same thing, right, so I don't see an issue with removing abortWith().
