Bill, we're trying to fix/work around a jessie to stretch upgrade path
issue for the default desktop setup. And we're days away from the
tentative date for the release. Needless to say, trying to fix this
upgrade path is somewhat more important than what happens for stretch to
buster, for which years still have to pass. Plenty of time to figure out
what to do.

Of course it would be better if ca-certificates-java wouldn't have been
“fixed” on 2017-05-31 when openjdk-7 was removed on 2016-04-22. But
that's the situation we have to deal with right now.
