It is definately necessary to discuss the more special bean scopes of request and session scope, but I think the discussion in this chapter is a bit unclear.

The chapter tries to argue why request and session scopes are necessary, and it is this argument that seemed a bit unclear to me. As I read it, I was wondering if it was even necessary to explain why those two scopes are necessary? Wouldn't it be enough just to say that "sometimes you need objects to live as long as the request or session they are part of"...?
