Declaring one as "default" is a way of guaranteeing that Tomcat will answer 
all requests even if it receives one that doesn't match a Host element.

This is nothing unusual, it is no different than what Apache does...Apache 
has a global ServerName, which serves requests that can't be assigned to 
any VirtualHosts.
