I may have dreamt this =) but I thought you could have the
LocalDirector/F5/whatever handle SSL for you, then send plaintext
traffic back to the Tomcat containers.   (This is effectively what
people do when they put a web server in front of Tomcat using jk/jk2.)

That would grant the LD/F5/etc access to plant their own cookies and
otherwise determine which client was bound to that Tomcat.

-but again, this is all hazy in my memory, so I fear I may have dreamt
it all...
