[jax-rs-spec users] [jsr339-experts] properties back by HttpServletRequest attributes?

Just a thought...

Instead of a property map, why not have interceptor/filter property be:

Object getProperty(String name);
void setProperty(String name, Object value);
void removeProperty(String name;
Set<String> getPropertyNames();

And also require these properties be backed by HttpServletRequest when
running in a servlet environment (server-side only not client
framework). This would allow metadata to be passed to/from servlet
filters, servlet request forwarding, and JAX-RS.
