Yes I agree. But if we can have multiple deployer for same extension
then why not do that , in fact we have that support. So why do you want
to brake that , what do you achieve from that ?

Since I am not a user , I do not know what to tell. But as a developer I
do not see any problem with the current way. And I think I will be -1 if
we trying to do major changes to deployment side , the reason is it is
stable and if you break that we are in a big trouble. And have learn a
good lesion  from braking the deployment .

Amila , stuff you are talking does not happen regularly.  Specially in
production environment . So changing axis2.xml is not a problem at all.
And even if you look at stuff like Jboss , Tomcat they have the same
thing , as long as you go with the default you are fine , if you need
additional stuff then you got to change configuration file.
