I strongly support that!

IMHO as little as possible of these higher level features should be
implemented within CDI itself, so that CDI itself can completely focus
on being the contextual DI spec on which all other specs can build.

I think it's already problematic that CDI 1.1 provided producers for
Servlet artifacts, instead of letting the Servlet spec itself define
those producers. If/when Servlet starts depending on CDI there will be
a rather awkward circular dependency.

Kind regards,
