Actually, maybe a properites map should be shared between request,
response, filter, and handler and each of these interfaces should have a
getProperites() method. I know Servlet request has attributes which are
used a lot when forwarding requests and the app wants to send
information along with the forwarding. If JAX-RS ever has the ability
to forward requests, then a properties map on Request might be needed too.
