Where Tomcat is used as the reference implementation for the 
Servlet and JSP specs, and where the mission of the Tomcat development
team is to deliver a 100% spec compliant Servlet/JSP container, I think 
it would be pretty difficult to make a case for calling such discussions 

Another good reason for quoting the specs, chapter and verse, is that the 
tomcat documentation, for the most part, doesn't repeat what's in them.
Therefore, the best place to look, when you want to find out why Tomcat
(or any other spec compliant container for that matter) behaves the way 
it does, is the specs.

I thought your other points were very valid.
