Good question.
java/l10nconv and java/receditor are not even build (they are not in
build.lst) so removing them is not risky.
As far as I can tell, jpropex has been never used in OpenOffice.org
localization. But it does not mean that it will not be used in the
future. It is quite new code. See #i100854# and #i112394#. We might
need it for the proper localization of Oracle Report Builder
