Sorry, but I care about TC 3.2/3.3 users base, since I'm one of them.

I've got not less than 50 clients using TC 3.3.1a and they use the
described layout.

Also sometimes ago we speak about security manager and stuff which 
shouldn't be get OUTSIDE the web application. When you have web.xml
and its external entities in the same war, why couldn't we get them
directly ?

A webapp in a WAR doesn't have to know about specific appBase, or
I missed a whole episode ?

Sure and since a webapp should be independant, the external entities 
SHOULD be searched by default in the WAR or exploded WAR...
