Oh, but it is... Java2 programs can then "depend" on this 
java2-virtual-machine... Java2 implementations like your new packages will
provide this "java2-virtual-machine" package... it is much easier then
updating each program when a news java2 VM somes into play (not that that
happens much...)

Anyway, it is Debian policy that Java VM's must provide 
java-virtual-machine... the upcoming proposal is that J2VM's must provide
java2-virtual-machine as well...

The java2-virtual-machine package itself does not even exist(, i think)...
