Is there a clear definition of which (source) packages fall below it
that would make it easy to check if an exception is needed or not? (for
those who aren't familiar with java).

Something like all source packages producing binary packages matching
"lib.*-java" and a list of packages that would miss this check (like
e.g. "groovy" which was mentioned in this thread). Or whatever other
check seems suitable.

Are all "Java" libraries affected or e.g. only those in main as they are
used by e.g. Eucalyptus?
