Hmm... interestingly, in Jersey we've been able to leverage the AbstractMultivaluedMap to accomplish what you wanted to do without running into major issues:

Note that the concrete implementation (MultivaluedHashMap) is there for users of JAX-RS API that sometimes requires MultivaluedMap as an input type. The abstract is there to allow the concrete impl and to help people providing their own custom impls (such as the one above).
