and here's my reason:

Server configuration should take place as much as possible inside
server.xml, for many reasons.  The biggest pragmatic one is, you can
have multiple server.xml files on a single host, but only one script, so all changes to apply to all hosts.

If it's easier to write code that checks for a property, then we
should take the time to improve the API for XmlMapper so that
developers (us) feel comfortable adding a setting to server.xml.
