According to the JAR File Specification [1], the META-INF directory is 
used "... to configure applications, extensions, class loaders and 
services". I don't think that JAR-Files itself fall into this category.

A quick check of some Eclipse Plug-ins seems to place jar files into the 
root directory of the bundle.
