Yes, right. Sorry -- that's a better use of the terms.

Continuing on this dead horse down just one more block: if it were
important, you could even build this abstraction directly into the
servlets, since it doesn't require the more powerful custodian that
the dispatchers seem to have (or if dispatchers can be killed, you can
improve the abstraction to cope with that).
