I will say this again:

I am highly skeptical/violently opposed to defining an MVC framework
inside of JAX-RS. If other specifications, like JSF, want tighter
integration with JAX-RS, let them worry about it.

+1000. Keep MVC out of JAX-RS. I'm fine defining simple things like
forwards and some way of transfering properties around. But, we should
only be defining APIs/SPIs to make creating MVC frameworks possible, not
implementing one ourselves in JAX-RS.
