A killer feature would be extending the balancer to be a HTTP reverse proxy.

Then tomcat could be a reverse proxy to other tomcats (or any other 
webserver) if needed.

I have a (very simple) reverse proxy filter available that if my employer 
allows it - I could release. It catches some of the edge cases like 
Content-length=0 with more headers available and other such cases.
