What I am doing is implementing a caching hierarchy. It is not based on the 
ICP protocol.
So for example, I need to send a "HEAD" request to query the upper cache
for some informations and depending on these informations to send "GET" request.
I've wanted to use the HttpServer.runRequest(Request) method more times.

If I would implement this through a filter it would be more complecated
and again I would need to instantiate a Request object(which is impossible
now because it hasn't accessable constructor). Of course I could make 
my own "myRequest" class with the same implementation like Request and
using it to emit requests. But it's not fine.
