This is a documented method of creating InitialContext, see section URL for Configuring Service Providers of http://docs.oracle.com/javase/jndi/tutorial/ldap/misc/url.html page if interested.
I think there was never formal feature request raised for this so this was not added deliberately. Instead this is side effect of using standard JRE ldap client, apparently valuable one. I have tested that quickly yesterday and seems to be working fine. In order to provide proper load balancing (with health checks and actual load monitoring) one may prefer to look for proper load balancing solution, though.
