OK, well they don't have separate package groups either.

I'm sorry, I think I've taken a wrong turn at Albuquerque and wandered
onto the Sun marketing list.

Back to reality, it seems to me to be imminently reasonable that Java
should have its own package group because there are a quantity of
packages associated with it, but to argue that Java alone deserves
such treatment while other languages in the same situation don't
because they're not "subsystems" seems, well, odd.
