I think Chuck's comment, while certainly snarky, is entirely
appropriate: why should Tomcat change the way it establishes its
default configuration? Some people like XML, some like properties,
some like @Annotations, etc. You can start holy wars about all these
kinds of things. In this case, history and code momentum and favors
the current implementation. There just doesn't seem to be a particular
reason to change things.

If you have a particular reason why you think things should be
changed. please make that clear. So far, you just seem to be asking
why things simply are not done differently. The reason they aren't
done differently is because they are done the way they are done. If
there is an advantage to switching to another configuration strategy
(e.g. it's harder for end-users to break things, etc.) then make your
case and let the devs decide.

Just don't endlessly argue your suggestion or preference without
giving some reason for change. The ASF is a meritocracy: good ideas
and working code rule. Academic arguments are rarely productive. If
you want to produce your own patches and attach them to bugzilla
issues, they may be applied, but only if you can clearly articulate
why change should happen.
