Sounds good.

Maybe ... I was of thinking something like a webapp with this (logical) 

<Context path="" docBase="/dev/null" />

And then (assuming) the default servlet is in
  $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml we then will not need an extra web.xml 
(but it might be convenient to do so in case the defaults in the system 
web.xml have undesirable behaviors)
