docBase in config file not ignored when war attribute provided using catalina ant deploy tasks

I understand how to work around it.  I just don't see why it is necessary to
have to work around it?  You can call this "splitting hairs", but many
bugs/enhancement requests are, by definition, "splitting hairs".  The
functionality doesn't quite meet expectations, therefore a bug/enhancement
request.  Anyway...

There is already the ability to override the "docBase" attribute in the config
file by providing a "war" attribute.  If I provide the "localWar" attribute, I
provide it for the same reason as I did with the "war" attribute.  So, why not
the same behavior of ignoring the "docBase" in the config file?  The thing is, I
have stuff where I do require the config file (loggers, connection pools,
overriding environment variables, etc...).  I also currently have a single
config file with the docBase set to a default of "myapp.war" which is only used
when actually uploading a file to a server.  I now have to create a separate
config file whith the only difference being the lack of a "docBase" attribute. 
Again, this seems inconsistent and unnecessary.

I won't reopen this if you really think it is invalid, but it is most certainly
inconsistent behavior and at least that is noted here.
