So do I. 

While in theory they should be in the jar, you don't allways control the 
jar - you may want to enable discovery for an existing (and 
unmodifiable) jar by just adding a separate one with the discovery data.

By 'can't modify' I mean either licence or if you don't want to mess
with released products ( i.e. alter their structure ) or if it 
is signed.
