I think the thinking was that let's leave this for backward
compatibility, but given that SE5 has EOL-ed in 2009, I think it's OK to
IIUC, that means we start requiring Java6 and onward for building
plugins, which seems reasonable to me. People who absolutely need to
build with SE5 can still stick to the current version of maven-hpi-plugin.
(And I see some build issues with Java7 presumably due to those classes,
and if removing them fixes that, it's all the better.)
