Yes, this is a great start.

I’m least worried about EL, most about JSF and Serlet.

This is definitely not ok, as you expanded the scope of the sentence to include built-in beans, producer methods, producer fields, and custom beans. I would suggest providing list of these changes, so we can review each one.

I also think this is problematic. A Java EE component is a specific thing. I would suggest providing list of these changes, so we can review each one.

Ok, I don’t think this is a problem.
