Java EE 6 Web Component Developer but no JSF?

Hello,
So, having passed my OCJP I'm thinking of the EE certifications now.

I'm following this useful Java 6 EE guide: http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/tutorial/doc/giqvh.html and in there it states that JSF is the standard for creating your presentation layer and that JSP is there "for compatibility with earlier releases, but recommends the use of Facelets as the display technology in new applications.”

How come when I view the java ee 6 web component developer exam:
http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=5001&get_params=p_exam_id:1Z0-899&p_org_id=&lang=

It’s all about JSP and nothing on JSF. Any reason why? and is there any point in doing the exam and learning old technology when really I want to focus on JSF, etc. Obviously JSP's are still important but I'd rather have a EE 6 exam focus on what I'll actually be doing?

Oracle was planning to create a JSF certification (next to the Web Components certification) but they cancelled it, and I don't expect it to come in the near future.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
