jpackage-utils is the master package that owns java-related directories
(and other java packaging policy-related files)

Policy is open to discussion @fedora and @jpackage, but a central policy
package makes managing things easier.

%{_jnidir} is the correct place according do jpackage naming conventions
(file:///usr/share/doc/jpackage-utils-*/jpackage-1.5-policy.xhtml)

It's never seen much use, because packaging basic java classes is hard
and jni code is harder. So it could probably be redefined if the current
default is found lacking. However because jni classes depend on arch
code, it should stay %{_libdir}-based IMHO.
