That specific question I think belongs in tomcat dev as you've been

Yeah, I saw that code, and it is ugly ;)  You don't want to do a
digest.parse(stream) because that'll trigger digester rules.  You could
just construct a DOM Document quickly using the default XML parser.

Open a bugzilla enhancement request for 5.0.1.  Attach your patch for
5.0.1 to the bugzilla item.

By the way, with regards to your preference of using an
ExtendedHostDeployer rather than patching the StandardHostDeployer: I
like it and agree with it.  I don't think the host deployer is
configurable right now.  We could make it configurable however...
