Yeah, I'm not convinced either.  The resolver design was intended to 
allow varying approaches and I have no problem if 
StructuredTargetResolver wants to use the content type, but the 
regextargetresolver likely should not.

Dan has already done some refactoring.  I don't know if he was planning 
to do more.  Since I don't use spring, it would definitely be good to 
have more eyes looking at it to see what else needs to change
