After a very frustrating private email exchange ...

As I said previously:

-1 for allowing configuration of a TLD exclusion list, because we're not 
out there to gain .01s on startup time, and a hardcoded list is good 
enough and will give us 99% of the benfit (which is already dubious IMO, 
but I don't mind about it overall). Also, (see below), the place where 
this is configured seems inappropriate.

-1 for allowing dynaminc configuration of CatalinaProperties. is only meant to be able to configure the Bootstrap 
class of Tomcat, and shouldn't be a place to hack in things we want to hide.

Please consider reverting the relevant patches. I think the best would 
be to completely remove the TLD exclusion list feature, as adding 
gratuitous complexity is bad.

Thanks :)
