As described by Adam Winer in that forum thread, this is not a JSF specification problem, it's a problem with the JSF reference implementation. Other JSF implementations, such as those coming from the application server vendors or open source projects like MyFaces, can easily provide a StateManager implementations that don't have this problem.

Please, don't confuse the "specification" with the "implementation". Java specification reference implementations are typically not intended to be used in production, they are intended to prove that the spec can be implemented, and can also be used as the starting point for "real" implementations (depending on how they are licensed, of course).
