I've no experience with JSF, I'm assuming the users are not calling
/faces directly/explicitly.
'/webapi/*' sounds ok as far as the name of uri pattern is concerned,
may be "/rs/*" is also possible, but IMHO users will in most cases
expect some custom mappings ? Unless we expect that some convention will
be formed by the community, similar to "/services/*" with SOAP
