It seems increasingly obvious that the provider of these commercial
versions is not interested in maintaining database functionality and the
supporting Java functionality that accompanies the Base module. The
reasons for this may be perfectly valid commercially-focussed decisions,
and not just linked to the specifics of the AppStore rules.

I don't think it's right. As far as I'm concerned, LibreOffice Vanilla is
built from the LibreOffice source without any change (hence the name
Vanilla). says:

2.4.5 Apps distributed via the Mac App Store have some additional
requirements to keep in mind:
(viii) Apps should run on the currently shipping OS and may not use
deprecated or optionally installed technologies (e.g. Java)

So as far as I'm concerned, it is not possible to include Java based HSQLDB
in LibreOffice Vanilla. Omission of Java is a technical limitation, not a
commercially focused decision.
