I think "they" explicitly set the session id parameter and cookie name
so that different implementations would be compatible. In some cases,
you may need to hand-code a URL and preserve the jsessionid parameter.
If you switched servlet containers, you'd have to go back and find all
those references and change them.

I don't find that too compelling of a reason, though.

Can you provide a few examples of how Tomcat allows you to violate other
parts of the specification?
