When trying to persuade others to your point of view or to volunteer
some of their time to implement a feature you would like to see, taking
an antagonistic approach is rarely the most effective way to achieve
your objective.

To the best of my knowledge, you are the first person to suggest such a
feature. That doesn't mean that such a feature would be unwelcome. It
strikes me as a useful addition; if it can be implemented without having
to change the setter for every attribute that could use these abbreviations.

Tomcat is developed by the community. That means everyone - including
you - has a role to play. If there is a feature you would like to see,
you can open an enhancement request. Enhancement requests with patches
tend to find their way into the code base faster than enhancement
requests without patches. If you need some pointers on writing a patch
for this, you can ask here.
