The easiest solution I see is to determine if DefaultFileLocation,
location of data store being created, is file-like (consists of .shp
part) or directory (no .shp part at the end).
Yes, it's limited in case one would like to have directory-based data
store like this:
But if it's acceptable to forbid directory names using .shp, then
FDO could work similarly to OGR, which supports sinle-file or
directory based data source.

Or another option is to not support ListDataStores command,
what I explained in my previous post.
