I've just checked, some java library packages indeed do depend on 
-jre-headless, and some do not depend on any jre package at all.

Anyways, if I recall correctly, Matthew Johnson once told me (when we 
were discussing a patch for jh_depends) that java libraries aren't 
supposed to depend on any jre, it is the java apps.
