A similar feature is part of JSP 2.0, by the way.  A page author can point
at a chunk of JSP code (rather than Java) and create a reusable widget,
optionally with parameters, which the JSP compiler essentially turns into
a custom tag automatically.  The page author using the widget invokes it
just like any other custom tag.  Among other things, this supports the
kind of separation you suggest.
