How are you going to implement
ServletContext.getResource(String): URL

without a custom URL scheme  (be it named "jndi" or somehow else)?

For file resources it might be possible to produce the "actual" URL
pointing to a JAR entry or to a file (leaving aside the question of
whether it exposes too much details),  but you cannot do so with
directories,  as entries in a directory can be assembled from several
sources.
