Your copy of cas-protocol.xml is probably just pre-3.whatever and doesn't have this comment inside it.

       | Uncomment this bean if you want to override the default list of CAS service registries.
       | The default configuration tries to find the relying party in a SAML metadata source and falls back to
       | reloadableServiceRegistry if a match is not found.
    <!--<util:list id="shibboleth.CASServiceRegistries">
        <ref bean="shibboleth.CASMetadataServiceRegistry" />
        <ref bean="shibboleth.CASServiceRegistry" />

The CAS docs are very implicit and rely on reading comments in files.
