I guess I agree with Bill that post-match is used more often. We can do
pre and post matches in CXF, but per matching is more about affecting
the http method name or content-type/accept, without even knowing if it
will lead to the successful match or not, while the post match is where
the real work often occurs, example, checking the security context, etc

Cheers, Sergey
