Classpath-relative URLs in CSS

here is another problem with image url resolving in CSS. I observed this 
before as quoted below but would like to give it a little more focus now.

Consider the following project structure (in Eclipse):

Project 1

Project 2 (inherits classpath from Project 1)

In sheet1.css I can access the image with something like 
url("../images/logo.jpg"). The problem is, I cannot do the same in 
sheet2.css: the image won't be found. As a consequence it is hard or 
impossible to share resources with other projects.

I am guessing that the relative URL is processed with URI.resolve or 
something like that. Is it possible to use the classloader instead, or 
will this be included anyway with RT-21967?
