Well...IMHO, we are getting hung-up on the semantics of multiple authenticators
Vs multiple login-configs. I would like to think of these two as two distinct,
though connected, topics.
I can understand why multiple login-config entries should result in an error -
as the login-config itself does not define how multiple entries can be chained
and what  protocol they need to use when each entry in the chain is invoked. A
contrast will be the JAAS model, where the contract is defined and clear.

However, we can treat the chaining of multiple authenticators differently - as
authenticators are an implementation of Tomcat, and it can define the contract
and expected behavior. Also, please note that multiple authenticators are
configured not because of multiple login-config entries, but because of entries
in the context.xml , server.xml, or both. These are configurations are defined
by Tomcat and thus it has control on what can done there.
