[javaee-spec users] Properties files in javax.servlet-api jar are not present in javaee-api jar?

The javaee-api-7.0.jar doesn't appear to include
javax.servlet.LocalStrings.properties file (and its variants), even
though the javax.servlet classes use these resources. At any rate this
is true of the javaee-api-7.0 jars I've obtained via Maven or otherwise
downloaded (e.g.
http://mvnrepository.com/artifact/javax/javaee-api/7.0,
http://download.java.net/glassfish/4.0/promoted/javaee-api-7.0-b86.jar)

In contrast all of the javax.servlet-api-3.1.0.jar archives that I've
found do include these properties files (and similarly have a
package.html file within javax.servlet that isn't present in the
javaee-api jar).

Same is true of at least some other APIs (e.g. javax.faces) - the
individual API's jar includes properties files etc but the javaee-api
jar is purely the class files on their own.

Is this intentional for some reason, or a mistake?
