I was wondering why a view registry would need to be attached to the 
request instead of, say, an the application object?

For adapter registries this makes less sense, though, so perhaps the 
request is a better place to put this kind of stuff.

Could you go into some details of why you dislike thread locals? Harder 
to test?
