My vote is to keep "jakarta-tomcat". The motive is selfish; that's
the name I use in the examples in my JSP book. But I'm sure I'm
not the only one, and that there's a lot of documentation all over
the place that use this name.

Everyone has an opinion about names, but finding a name that everyone
agrees on is pretty much impossible. What would we really gain by
changing it?
