I agree that we normally do not have to document web.xml defaults,
since they are Java-EE-generic in most cases.

However, session-timeout is an exception. The web.xml schema describes
it as follows:

If the timeout is 0 or less, the container ensures
the default behaviour of sessions is never to time
out. If this element is not specified, the container
must set its default timeout period.

So in the case of session-timeout, the default is app-server specific,
which is why I think we should document it.
