CDI supports EJB reference lookup too. CDI 1.1 is simplifying
BeanManager interface too. So, I'm not 100% against this feature like I
was @ManagedAsync, but I'm not in favor of it at this moment.

As I said before, I would be interested in a Servlet.forward() feature.
  Something like:

interface ResourceContext {

    void forwardFromBase(String relativePath);
    void forwardAbsolute(String path);

IMO, CDI integration with JAX-RS combined with a forwarding interface
pretty much covers the use cases you're interested in.
