But, at SCWCD main Sun's website, not yet updated with this version...

Section 8: Building JSP Pages Using Standard Actions
* Given a design goal, create a code snippet using the following standard actions: jsp:include, jsp:forward, and jsp aram.
Section 9: Building JSP Pages Using Tag Libraries
* Given a design goal, use an appropriate JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL v1.1) tag from the "core" tag library.
Section 10: Building a Custom Tag Library
* Given a scenario, write tag handler code to access the parent tag and an arbitrary tag ancestor.
* Describe the semantics of the "Simple" custom tag event model when the event method (doTag) is executed; write a tag handler class; and explain the constraints on the JSP content within the tag.
Section 11: J2EE Patterns
* Given a scenario description with a list of issues, select a pattern that would solve the issues. The list of patterns you must know are: Intercepting Filter, Model-View-Controller, Front Controller, Service Locator, Business Delegate, and Transfer Object.
* Match design patterns with statements describing potential benefits that accrue from the use of the pattern, for any of the following patterns: Intercepting Filter, Model-View-Controller, Front Controller, Service Locator, Business Delegate, and Transfer Object.

The link is CUT OFF. If you look at the upgrade exam, it lists all of those custom tag and patterns stuff:

This new exam does have a beta phase.

That's a rather cynical stance against the Sun certification program. I hope you'll reconsider your accusations.
I encourage you to study the new items in Servlet 2.5 and JSP 1.2

I read about them a long time ago (it's JSP 2.1 btw ).
