mark commented on FOP-2889:

they are not redhat's product, they are a propriatary, closed source Sun (now 
Oracle) legacy product, providing them as jboss/redhat is violates the 
distribution clause.

Because FOP now depends on JAI (as it is defined as a runtime dependency and 
not a compile dependency), FOP can no longer be used without this component, 
while in previous versions it could, it also means that FOP is now tied to this 
and upgrade to the current version of FOP may be impossible for licensing (or 
technical) reasons
