I'd like to know your thoughts: what has driven you to propose this idea?

I'm not sure I would use this in preference...in addition, possibly.

I can see that it would make quick hacks easier and would be very useful for situations that only affect a single-page.

I can see some disadvantages: harder to 'grok' the flows in the app without looking at all the views; not so good for (postulated, future) tool support...the flow/actions of an app would be all over the place, rather than in one place (ok...a few places: faces-config/pages/jpbm config files...but these do gather flows up); harder to configure global aspects (ie using pages.xml to check for whether a user is logged in or not before allowing access to sensitive sections of a web app....it would not be as nice to have to guard every page individually). Seems to me that this is what drove the development/introduction of the front-controller idea in the first place? 

ahhh...I seem to have heard all this in the Java Annotations vs. XML config files wars of yore.

Just my AU$0.02...
