I think it would be misleading because of the directory name.  Dragging
in extra dependencies just to build the .jar files seems like a waste.
Downloading everything to one directory would make life easier, so it is
too bad about the name.

The description for OOO Extras on Sourceforge says this:

  A space to store classic OOo dependencies that cannot be easily
  redistributed in Apache OpenOffice's SVN tree,

  Initially this was meant for copyleft tarballs only but it is also
  pretty handy to mirror other file dependencies.

Since ext_sources isn't distributed in the source archives for
releases, checking even non-copyleft source tarballs into svn under that
directory only helps people who are building from sources checkout out
via svn.
