It was not really an "oops, where are they" error, but a desperate
decision to keep the CDs within limits again, and compensate for
ever-growing OO.o packages. The two most popular apps (writer and
calc) largely work without Java. You'll need it if you want to use the
wizards, and other non-core functionality, though (at least for some
of these it asks you to install the full openoffice.org package if you
try to use those).
