For the record, the reason I have brought this up (aside from being a
follow up to a discussion the Seam developers were having at the last
meeting) is because this behavior is going to be the default in JSF
1.2. Thus, we want to make sure that:

a) we are aware of it (as Seam devs)
b) we vet it before JSF 1.2 is final

Cheers and happy testing.
