IMHO, we should work on the user experience, and not focus mainly on the
(technical) image size. As said, in case of missing java, there should
be a good user help with how to install java afterwards, if it's
*really* needed. I don't see any reason so far why it's needed for any
standard application??

And well, why keep java and remove firefox? I don't understand...
