I'm using 3.2.2 and 3.2.3 and tey remain using default web.xml.
This is very good when you have a lot of virtualhosts to configure.
I work on an ISP and it permit for us setting many this for all customers.

Will be very good to have this as an option. 
And anyone who needs this option can use this without having to recompile tomcat.
