What was wrong with the "optional" priority?  From the Debian Policy
manual Section

          This is all the software that you might reasonably want to install
          if you didn't know what it was or don't have specialised
          requirements. This is a much larger system and includes X11, a    
          full TeX distribution, and lots of applications.                  

          This contains packages that conflict with others with higher  
          priorities, or are only likely to be useful if you already know   
          what they are or have specialised requirements.                   

I think it's reasonable to include a Java compiler in optional.
