I understand that. 

Sure, from a protocol purists point of view, it would be nice - but I
would much rather see our effort directed toward other things. Building
a vote-taking bot is only useful 4 times per yet. Many other project the
JSF considers are, I think, considerably more beneficial. 

A communications protocol doesn't need to solve everything with itself.
HTTP and the Web seem a much more natural fit for voting...
