The results are in org.apache.catalina.filters in trunk.

In summary:
 - some valves were converted and the valve removed
 - some valves were converted but the valves kept
 - some valves weren't converted

I imagine that as many valves as can be will be converted during the
lifetime of Tomcat 7 and we'll look again at whether it makes sense to
remove valves completely in Tomcat 8. That will probably depend on what
the ServletAPI exposes to filters since some of the valves, particularly
for authentication, require access to Tomcat internals.
