I think I wasn't clear enough. Many Java applications will not run on any free JVM, because the free JVMs aren't complete enough. Certainly the JVMs go in main, but the applications that don't work with the free JVMs must stay in contrib: Social Contract 1 makes that fairly clear.

Java in main.

That's something the community (we as well) should work on.

At least members of the community interested in Java.
