With my Tomcat committer hat on:
No. Primarily because Tomcat doesn't have a dependency on collections
and hasn't for some time.

Tomcat does depend on other Commons libraries that have yet to be
converted to generics (pool, dbcp) and it causes absolutely no problems

Don't get me wrong, I am all for generics but please don't go parading
Tomcat around as a reason to do so.
