Sure, it can be fixed. It just will take a while to fix them.
Since those packages are libraries they should not depend on a JRE anyway.
Maybe in the meantime you can workaround this issue with equivs.
Regarding libbatik-java, since the issue is with the Recommends on
openjdk-6-jre, I'm not sure that would be a bug. You can file a bug or try to
contact the maintainers and convince them about that Recommends, maybe they
have reasons, I don't know.
Regarding the others packages, I'll fix them soon.
