There are two problems I can see when using this way instead of a newly
created MyApp::Whatever:

1) You can't override the methods, because the plugin is a base of the
   Req/Resp object, so the original would overrule the plugins methods.

2) If you're having more than one application loaded (e.g. under
   mod_perl) you would change the Catalyst::Req/Resp class for all of
