Is there any plan to merge MVC and WebAPI classes?

WebAPI duplicated almost everything from MVC because it didn't want any mvc dependencies for mvc projects. This still causes a lot of confusion because of the duplicated classes.

Are there any plans to merge them into the same classes sometime in the future?
For example, making MVC depend on System.Web.Http which would make more sense.

I guess this was lost between the messages, but I still would like to know this.

Currently for every filter I create, I need 2 versions with exactly the same code.

Could someone from the team give us a hint if this will ever be fixed? Or will this be one of those things you never plan to touch because it could break the code?

Yup, this is currently under investigation. We want to have an aligned web platform that can run outside of ASP.NET on any OWIN host.
