If there is enough interest and committers that need that feature -
I see no problem with that.

As procedure, I think it would be nice to announce the new features
before commiting them.

IMO the best way to improve this in future is to separate the 'core' 
and modules, or at least have a separate directory for add-on features
and modules. This way the 'core' release can be frozen, but new features
can be easily added. Given the backward compatibility it is even possible
to even share the modules for multiple tomcat versions ( probably some
doc should mention if it was tested with 4.0, 4.1 or 5.0 ).

This may also increase the release cycle and reduce the load for the RM
( or at least allow the load to be spread - since modules could be
released separately ).
