You had a problem you couldn't solve. Someone with an e-mail
address (i.e. an Apache committer and probably a Tomcat committer -
something you can easily check) provided a solution that worked and you
are asking if that solution is correct? I am trying very hard not to be
to be extremely sarcastic right now.

There was a lot of lifecycle clean-up in Tomcat 7 including:
- using the same interface for all components
- adding JMX registration consistently
- making sure things were symmetric (what is done in init() is undone in
destroy(), what is done in start() is undone in stop())

It is likely that binding and unbinding of the port were different in
Tomcat 6 but I haven't checked svn to confirm this.

Sockets in Tomcat 7 connectors are bound in init() and unbound in
destroy() by default although you can change this to start() and stop()
by setting the bindOnInit attribute on the connector to false.
