Do you mean "use the Unified EL for everything"  - rather than "JSP" ?
Sounds like a good plan to me (from a non-S2 user) since the unified
EL[1][2] is no longer dependant on JSP. The Tomcat project has
recently published its EL implementation on the maven repos - so
theres a license compatible version available[3][4].
