It would be convenient, but might cause applications to fail when ported 
to other app servers.  If the spec is clear on the correct usage, then I 
think it's better to just detect the problem and display a very specific 
warning/tip in the log so that the developer can easily find and fix the 
problem at development time.  (As opposed to having to hunt down a 
generic lookup failure, or figure out why things suddenly broke months 
later when moved to a different app server.)
