I disagree.  It should give recommodations on how they should be
built, to make it easier for the java developers to maintain the java
packages.  Consistency reduce the work maintaining packages, and using
a common system for building java packages make it easier to improve
all java build systems by doing a modification only once, in the build

But it should probably not be a requirement, to avoid endless flame
wars with maintainers who fail to see the gain of standardizing the
build system for java packages.
