I can't speak for the group as a whole, but tags like HTML form elements
seem controversial and difficult to get right, and I'd thus personally be
surprised if they ended up in JSPTL 1.0.  The JavaServer Faces (JSR-127)
JSR calls for a tag library in support of "graphical" elements; see

for more information about JSF.
