contrib and installability in testing

I've noticed that several packages from contrib are unable to get into
testing because (as allowed by policy's definition of contrib) they
depend on packages not in the distribution. I appreciate that this is a
bit of a pain to distinguish from normal uninstallable packages, but is
there any chance that some exceptions could be made? I'm thinking of
things like this:

trying: fop
skipped: fop (157+1)
    got: 32+0: a-8:a-6:h-15:i-3
    * i386: libfop-java

(missing j2sdk1.3 | j2se1.3 | java2-runtime)

trying: jakarta-jmeter  
skipped: jakarta-jmeter (149+1)
    got: 32+0: a-8:a-6:h-15:i-3
    * i386: jmeter

(missing j2sdk1.3)

trying: junit
skipped: junit (148+2)
    got: 32+0: a-8:a-6:h-15:i-3
    * i386: junit

(missing java2-runtime | j2re1.3)

There are probably some similar non-Java packages I've missed.
