JNDI was merged into the JDK before the platform as a whole was governed
by the JCP, so there's never been a separate JSR for it.  Any changes to
the JNDI API would therefore be covered by the relevant Java SE Umbrella
JSR unless they were so significant as to require their own JSR -- which
at this stage seems pretty unlikely.
