That would mean shipping bullseye with OpenJDK 8 as well,
which is kinda defeated by the justification to not ship
it with buster.

You can most likely use the binaries from sid (at least
for a while until library dependencies go up) or from
stretch-security (with stretch’s libraries for those
that aren’t in buster).

Recompiling it is also easy enough. But there’s no place
in Debian to host those.
