Extensions to the original proposal:

  AWTViewer and the servlet (and move the servlet from contrib to the
  main src tree)

gee, last I checked, the AWTViewer is fewer than a dozen classes,
and I'd guess it ~doesn't~ use a at most 2 or 3 dozen class files from
the fully-loaded jar (i.e., classes for the PDF and other renderers.)
Is it really worth factoring fop into separate jars that differ so little ?
I think it should. First of all it's clearly distinct component, which can be superfluous sometimes, e.g. when FOP is running on a server. Secondly, you forgot about GUI and L10n resources, which are going to get bigger. And last, there are some enhancement requests and plans about this stuff, so I'm sure it'll grow.
