Yes, and about 29,999,997 of them suck.

I see no reason at all why a RESTful framework should not offer decent
support for HTML. On the other hand, I concur that JAX-RS should
contain none of that Web-hiding component nonsense.

OK, I take that back; let me rephrase: I think it would only be
logical if JAX-RS supported a way to create a RESTful web application
as well as a RESTful web service.
