If you don't need authentication, why bother configuring it?

If you just want ANY client certificate to be available to your webapp, why not
configure <Connector clientAuth="want" />?

Enabling CLIENT_CERT *authentication* with no form of validation of the
certificate is entirely without merit.

If you just want the client certificate, then you want clientAuth="want" with
no authentication configured.

Like Mark, I will -1 any attempt to add this feature unless you can give us a
reasonable use case that is not possible to configure in Tomcat.
