So, JAX-RS is no longer a REST framework, but now a replacement for
servlets? Are you going to add WebSocket support? Http UPGRADE
support? How about security constraints? Forwards? Are you going to
create your own JAX-RS WAR type so you can bundle static files?

Keep REST stuff in JAX-RS, keep everything else in Servlet spec.
