For all these virtual package names there is a procedure to create them. As
far as I can remember you should tell the need for them in debian-policy as
the first step. You might want to check with the jdk maintainer regarding a
virtual package name for jdk.

I am also a wet-behind-the-ears[*] maintainer, the gurus will correct me if
I lapsed.

[*] I like this expression, what does it actually mean?
