I'm not sure anyone else's opinion matters at this point. You've
decided what you want to do... you're just looking for validation.
Technically, this works. Whether there are better ways to do it are
debatable. But you're not interested in anyone else's opinon, so why
bother asking?

How many different ways are there to demonstrate:

<Host>
  <Context />
</Host>

??

There is a description of all the ways to define a context here:
https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.5-doc/config/context.html#Defining_a_
context

The files go where the files go. The contents are not terribly
relevant. What kind of example were you looking for?
