Question on Java JDK build environments impacting JRE use

Here is an interesting technical puzzler from a non-developer...
So, with the 126.96.36.199 build got to looking at fdo#58995
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58995> JRE 1.7u25's Java
Access Bridge v2.0.3 not interfacing with UNO Accessibility API for Windows
The current 188.8.131.52 release build is pushing out classes with byte code
tagged --feca beba 0000 3100, so Java J2SE 5.0 .
And, I've had a look at the build info for several of the branches, the JDK
being used on Lubos & Kendy's TB 6, and on Fridrich's TB 9 systems. Lubos'
is using JDK 1.5.0_22, while Fridrich is using 1.6.0_23.
What is the impact of continuing to build a J2SE 5.0 bytecode target? Given
the ongoing issues with the non functioning LibreOffice/OpenOffice UNO
Accessibility API <-> Java Access Bridge 2.0.3 that is compiled into JRE
And in a similar vein, what impact does running HSQLDB and Report Builder
classes built as J2SE 5.0 bytecode, with the current 1.6u45 and 1.7u25 JREs?
Could this be a cause of some of the stability issues folks are having with
Base and Report Builder?
Could anyone spin up a TB to build Windows (possibly OSX) master using JDK
7, or possibly even Open JDK 8 beta (which has been marked M7 Feature
Complete as of 2013/06/13 ) and build Libreoffice with J2SE 7 classes?
And, if not too complicated to put up a TB with that capability, it would be
very helpful to test native Java 1.7 bytecode to determine if that
resolves some of the JAB issues of fdo#58995. And think it would also be
interesting to see if that helps the Report Builder and HSQLDB issues. And
maybe some positive impact on the OSX side as well.
