Upon second reading of that passage, you're right: though
catalina.properties is mentioned, it's (somewhat) clear than it can be
used to /define/ properties, but does not enjoy the
system-property-replacements used in those other files.

It makes sense, given that otherwise there would be a terrible circular
logic problem when reading catalina.properties. I suppose, eventually,
you'd either evaluate all system properties or detect a loop and could
bail-out.

If this seems like something the community would like, I wouldn't mind
writing a patch to allow this type of thing.
