JSP.7.3.9 Well-Known URIs
A JSP container may �know of� some specific URIs and may provide alternate
implementations for the tag libraries described by these URIs, but the user must see
the behavior as that described by the required, portable tag library description
described by the URI.
A JSP container must always use the mapping specified for a URI in the
web.xml deployment descriptor if present. If the deployer wants to use the
platform-specific implementation of the well-known URI, the mapping for that
URI should be removed at deployment time.
I am not sure but the tld you are using looks like a well known uri i.e. URI which is already known to the container.
So,the mapping might not be needed as the container already knows about the well known uri's.
I read that mapping stuff in a book on scwcd by Hanumant Deshmukh.
