Not sure I want my name associated with this forever. :)

Here's an excerpt from That's
why I tought the context with zero-length path was required.

You may define as many Context elements as you wish, nested within a Host
element in conf/server.xml. Each such Context MUST have a unique context
path, which is defined by the path attribute. In addition, you MUST define a
Context with a context path equal to a zero-length string. This Context
becomes the default web application for this virtual host, and is used to
process all requests that do not match any other Context's context path.

It wasn't a requirement for 3.2 and it isn't for 4.x.
