Absolutely. And it has worked well for the last decade with only a handful of reconfigurations when making major version changes, despite all my moaning.
A better approach would be to keep the class/method that performs the new steps to achieve the same or (if that is not possible) throws an Exception that contains the new XML-fragment or a pointer to the example in the jetty-etc-directory leading to the same result.
The creme-de-la-creme-solution would be a parser that converts a given XML-configuration to the new format (in general that should be possible by XSLT but I'm no expert in that).
Anything is possible in XSLT, which is kind of like saying "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!" :-)
