It is a matter of preference. 503 is some specific response status code
officially defined in RFC 2616. This is not an error to return 503 there.

Changing Severity and closing as WONTFIX, because this behaviour in Tomcat 5.5
will not be changed.

If I remember correctly, Tomcat 6 already replies with 404 when webapps are
stopped, thus this issues is "fixed" there.
