If you are really going to implement a valid descriptor for an old
version of the spec,
the root element may be not all that is there.

I see you also took care of metadata-complete=\"true\". OK.

The following also comes to mind:
<filter-mapping>, <servlet-mapping> in 2.4  do not support multiple
<url-pattern> elements.
 (Each pattern needs its own <**-mapping> element).

There might be some other options (inherited from the default
conf/web.xml)  that do not make sense in previous versions.

For the recored: the test suite (BIO,NIO,APR) completed successfully,
on Win7 using Java 6u45 32-bit.
