Tag files are always part of tag libraries - whether or not you define
an explicit TLD.

Tag libraries have a default JSP version that is not the same as the
servlet spec version defined in the web app.

Best guess: the default version is a JSP version that doesn't support
the EL you are trying to use. Tomcat recently got a lot stricter about
this in order to fix a handful of EL related bugs.
