How about RELAX NG (http://relaxng.org/) ?
RELAX NG is a schema language for XML.
RELAX NG has a "include" feature, so RELAX NG allows merging
plural schemas.

And the schema compiler for RELAX NG such as JAXB and 
Relaxer(http://www.relaxer.org/) maps the schema to Java classes.
If tomcat provides some rules for schemas to include, it is easy to get 
Java objects from XML documents. 
The server.xml will be a plugable and valid document.
