The one to name ROOT (not root) is the one you want clients to see when
they specify only the host name on the URL - it's the default webapp for
the web site.

That is the normal way of doing things.  Note that the docBase attribute
must not be specified in any <Context> elements in this scenario, since
it's derived from the location of the webapp.
