Description of problem:
LibreOffice currently depends on Java even if it has an option to disable the usage of Java. So IMHO there is no reason to pull in Java as a dependency even for security concerns it should be possible to install LO without Java. If a user still needs Java depending features of LO he still could install Java.

That is a fallacy. By that reasoning there should be no dependencies on anyting that is used dynamically, which includes dlopened libraries. If you want to disable java, just do it. I am really not interested in getting a slew of bug reports like "I cannot install this or that extension. It says 'Could not create Java implementation loader'".
