This makes no sense.

Is there some reason that the install routine can't automate this?

I just don't see thousands (or millions) of users having to do this 

Only you and a couple of others. You must not think that this is a general
problem that has been overlooked by the testers.

1) Java is not required to use this software. Just disable Java and use the
remaining 98% of it.
2) LibreOffice for Windows is a 32 bit application -- always. Any Java
component integrated into this software requires a 32 bit Java runtime.
3) The 2% of Java dependent features should work with any recent Java
version 6 or 7 (again: 32bit Java on Windows). The developers have no
influence on third party extensions though. Third party extensions may be
incompatible with Java7.
4) There is absolutely nothing wrong with Java 6. It is still maintained and
fully supported.
5) You can have as many Java versions on the same machine as required to run
your more or less antiquated Java applications, libraries, applets and
stuff. Regarding this office suite, just point your office to the latest
Java6-32 and all will be fine with any combination of LibreOffice,
extensions, wizards and Java databases.

I run LibreOffice 3.5 and Apache OpenOffice 3.4 with Java7 on Linux-64 and
Windows-32 platforms.
