I would second your point of view IF guys who make LE version gave us pointers 
to ALL missing components, like JavaMail, etc.

On the other hand, using system-wide XML parsers, and only those, has a 
drawback. Suppose one of your applications needs a particular version, while it 
doesn't sit well with Tomcat. What confusion will ensue then?

I believe that Craig commented something like that on the notion of having 
"global" Struts installation in Tomcat. OK, granted, it makes more sense, since 
you can build your WebApp for a particular version of Struts, while XML API 
should stay the same. But still, if you have a combo that is working - Tomcat 
X.Y.Z and Xerces A.B.C - then it is reasonable to ship it together.
