This is an important question... IMHO, many of these extensions are unuseful
for the most users (like MySQL Connector or Wiki Publisher, for example).
And, if you don´t have a JRE in your computer, you will recieve a message
about it. (OK, an installed JRE is very common but, if the message appears
for a simple user, it sounds like an error ...). In other case, in some
companies, extensions are limited use. Many extensions in the original
installation pack can force the corporative IT team to repack the
installation to remove extensions.
Additionaly, many extensions in LibreOffice are provided by Oracle . I think
this isn´t a good way to provide more functionallity for LibreOffice. What
do you think about LibreOffice without Oracle extensions?

There are several extensions installed along with LibreOffice. Some of them
depend on JRE and therefore cause errors when LibreOffice starts.
Wouldn't it be better to allow the user to select which extensions [s]he
wants to install, adding a special [warning] note to ones that require JRE?
