I'd like to stress that this is an old issue that's making EE harder to
use than it should be. It, along with the difficulty of deploying
companion or overlay artifacts to override descriptors per-deployment,
are making EE harder to deploy and use than it could be.

See this 2001 (!) post from where many of the same

There are a few more less-than-idea options now, but there isn't a good,
standard, canonical choice yet.
