Clearly you can - look how many independent webapps are deployed in the standard Tomcat download.

Replacing ROOT with your desired default webapp for the domain is not heavy-handed, it's expected.
 You can obviously only have one default webapp per <Host>; other webapps for the <Host>
have to be explicitly named.

Rename your Cocoon webapp to ROOT (remove the old ROOT first), and install your Lucene and
eXist applications under whatever names you choose under the <Host> appBase directory.

You likely only have one <Host>, and if you haven't changed the default appBase setting,
it's the webapps directory.  Your structure should look like this:

    ROOT (containing your Cocoon webapp)
    lucene (containing your Lucene webapp)
    exist (containing your eXist webapp)

The names are case-sensitive, so choose them carefully; they can be anything you choose, other
than ROOT.
