Maybe we should add a section about where to put servlets, I've chosen
/usr/share/java/servlets in libapache-mod-jserv. We then could create
a virtual package java-servlet-engine once there are other servlet

Why should it depend on java-common? It requires a JVM, so a dependency
on java-virtual-machine should be enough. Your policy says:

I suggest to change the last sentence to "Programs must depends on
java-virtual-machine, libraries on java-common or java-virtual-machine.".

> Libraries packages MUST be named lib-XXX-java. 

I'm strictly against this. I suggest java-XXX instead.
