This adds ways to work around the specification. The reason for which 
most people used Tomcat in the first place, as I said, was "it was a 
component of the RI, which meant not too many spec breaking features, 
and that an app that ran on Tomcat was likely to run on the production 
server (which was rarely Tomcat)". Do you have evidence which shows 
otherwise ?
