OK, I'm closing this item.  In summary:
- For Tomcat 5.0.x, docBase is required.  For some scenarios we could deduce 
it, but that's extra work that's not always trivial and will not be that 
portable to Tomcat 5.5.x.
- Use relative docBases whenever possible to make WAR files more transferable 
across machines.
- Use the other usual mechanisms, e.g. Ant filter tokens, so that only one 
version of the WAR file needs to be in source control.
- For Tomcat 5.5.x, the behavior of the deployer is sufficiently different that 
this item MAY be reconsidered.  Let's wait for 5.5.0, test it out, and if need 
be discuss the item on the mailing list BEFORE re-opening this issue or another 
one for 5.5.0.

Thanks ;)
