Yeah, "fatal" is probably too strong (of course, there are five or so years 
of record that I'm not a big fan of Catalina, so I probably overstated it 

To "fix" it (without changing the Catalina architecture) would probably 
require duplicating the StandardHostValve stuff in ApplicationFilterChain 
(which would be just too horrible).  And, since as Jan has noted, the spec 
is grey (or, rather, inconsistant) on this requirement,  I'm +1 to your -1 

Of course, if this gets clarified against us in the final 2.5 spec, then 
we'll have to do it for Tomcat 6.
