I think your time would be better spent lobbying to get this put into
the Servlet Spec (but I think that would be a waste of time too) because
Tomcat development is driven by the Servlet/JSP specs.

Since this isn't in the specs and since it goes against the the J2EE
principal of self contained apps, my guess is that it would fall on 
deaf ears in either camp.
