It is very trivial.
The mod_jk is proxy to Tomcat, and nothing more.
Things like mapping web app to the Apache vhost
that BTW works only when both Httpd and Tomcat are
on the same host is usable only for delivering static
content directly by Httpd.

Things like DirectoryIndex are completely
useless and further more breaks the security,
because the Tomcat must serve the default content.

So, although some hacks can be done, I'll veto
any option that will allow serving as default
some content that wouldn't be served by Tomcat
using his configure.
