No, I'm in no hurry to backport JOSM. I'm leaning towards deeming it
unsuitable for backports, although I'd like to have a JOSM backport to
not need the upstream jars on stable.

Because of the lack of feedback on this list, I think this discussion
should also be done on the java list to get the perspective of the
metadata-extractor & tika maintainers.
