RFC: provides: java-servlet-engine

I'm putting together a package for cocoon, which is a java
servlet that serves xml pages. So what?, I hear you cry...
Well, the problem is this. Cocoon requires, strangely enough , a
java servlet engine, such as tomcat, apache jserv, etc. So, in
the control file i'd like to be able to specify "requires:
java-servlet-engine" and let apt get on with it, rather than
saying "requires: apache-jserv|tomcat" etc.
I can't see anything in the debian-java archives or the java
policy about this...
Would this be in line with the debian packaging policy, or is
there a better way of doing this?
Any ideas gratefully received :-)
