Could it? Yes.

Should it? I'd wait for the JSR-356 if at all possible.

To be perfectly honest I'd start using 8.0.0-RC1. But I say that knowing
that as a Tomcat committer, if I hit a problem that I need fixed I can
commit the fix just as soon as I work out what it is :)

If you are prepared to accept that there are likely to be some bugs and
it might take us a couple of days (might be quicker) to get them fixed
then I would go with 8.0.x. The upside for you is that any bugs you find
should get fixed pretty quickly and once they have been fixed you'll
have your application running on the latest release with the maximum
lifetime with respect to long term support.

For an idea of how quickly things get fixed, take a look at the dev list
over the last few days as folks have been reporting problems with 8.0.0-RC1.

If you opt to go the 8.0.x route, I'd encourage you to build form source
(it is really simple) so you can pick up any fixes as soon as they are made.
