Just so you know, make sure to stay away from the MultiNavigationHandler if you do this. Using multinavigationhandler will break compatability with JSF1.2 - and a few of the other new APIs as well (most can be avoided if you use conditional registration). But anything you need to register in faces-config.xml will be unavoidably included and may cause ClassDefNotFound errors and the like.

No problem in that case.
If people are able to use weld on their project, they can probably also upgrade JSF. Besides that, JSF 1.2 should be banned from this world asap anyway ;-)
