Why does the import attribute of page directive does not work for <jsp:useBean>

I was importing a class using

<%@ page import = "beans.Person" %>

so I guessed i'd only have to do

<jsp:useBean id="person" class="Person" scope="request" />

but it gave me an error. I had to use the fully qualified name in the class property of <jsp:useBean> tag

<jsp:useBean id="person" class="beans.Person" scope="request" />

Why doesn't the page directive work here?

That comes from jsp spec.
for <jsp:useBean>, class and type must be fully qualified path .

i.e class="package.class" | type="package.class"
