The goal of the JRE is, as the name Java Runtime Environment says, that it
should be sufficient to run Java functionality.

That is Oracle's take.  In reality 

In all discussions I miss why LO needs more then the runtime
We should work to bring LO in the boundary of of the JRE.

No, Oracle  must fix the JRE, or Apple must correct OS X Java system calls. 
Until then, LO for tdf#94716 now requires use of the unaffected JDK -- at
the expense of OS X users now having to install the JDK rather than a broken
JRE to access the Java runtimes.

See Oracle's notes:

The LibreOffice details are in  tdf#74877
<>    and  
tdf#94716 <>  

LibreOffice has no skin in the game beyond running the Java based HSQLDB 
for Base internal database--and when we fully move to FireBird very little
requirement for Java going forward.  Java runtime -- from a JRE or JDK
becomes irrelevant to the project.
