There was a project long discussion, if we should really ship this file with
example entries. We can see a lot of installations in real life, that keep this
file unchanged, including the sample users and roles. We think it's not good
practise to deliver a user database with default but non-functional users.
That's the reason we commented them out.

I don't think that's really an imcompatibility, because the default entries are
not used inside tomcat. 

What is really lacking is appropriate docs. You can prevent the rewriting of the
file during startup by using the attribute readonly=false in server.xml
(default: true because of comptibility...).
