The key phrase is "anyone who can reach it".  If everyone within your firewall is fully trusted,
then don't worry about it.  If not everyone is fully trusted, then your current settings allow
those persons to make arbitrary changes to the configuration of Tomcat and your webapps with
rather limited tracking of who did what.  The MBeans exposed by the JMX interface are not
just viewable, they are modifiable by anyone with access.
