That is because AOSP has forked those projects and added something else to the code, which many components of Android SDK need. As a result, the upstream version of those libraries are not compatible any more.

There are also other third-party libraries our packages use, like lib7z. As long as the upstream version is compatible, we will use the upstream one.

Merging those AOSP changes is unwise since the developers never intended to even maintain the API stability. That's why we always update the packages so they are the same upstream version and the ABI version in their SONAME is always "0". They will do it themselves when they decide to (for example [1]).
