Except that is not what JBoss for one is doing.  The jboss.xml file is 
the equivalent geronimo config-store (well actually the jboss deploy 
directory is).  If someone wants to change something on jboss they just 
modify the jboss file and restart the server.  In the case of the 
deploy directory they modify the deployed file and jboss automatically 
detects a change, drops the current running configuration, and 
deploys/starts the new one.

All they did was to convert the properties file to the config.xml 
file.... same thing different format.
