Some more conservative shops intentionally lag behind on releases. The
reasons range from "afraid to upgrade" to "don't feel the need to
upgrade" or even "we've built a sizable architecture on an older rev and
upgrading will be a monumental effort."

Yes and no.  Even if the app used no features specific to Tomcat 4, you
still have to rebuild the app to upgrade.
