Extending the <resource> element

I have found the following example in the documentation, and it would do exactly what I want, except that the contents at the location are not static. 

<resource type="download" name="icons/" location="templates/extra/autofavourite/icons/"/>

 Ideally, I would like location to be something external to the plugin, like database content or an exploded zip file pulled from download/attachments.

So my question is, can I define my own resource type, and provide an implementation class that can access that location, and how would I go about it.

Alternatively, is there another way to accomplish what I am trying to do, and I just have't stumbled across it yet?

Yes, I am aware that this can be used as a "back door" method to sneak malicious code onto a page by making it an attachment. Locking it down will be phase 2.

I decided to go in a totally different direction. I realized that I was completely misunderstanding the concept of resources.
