According to me, Libre Office is developed primary on C++ with GTK, just the
extensions are on Java.

From a user's perspective, it always seemed like the Java portions of OOo
were shoehorned in. Starting a JVM eats up unneccessary memory and takes
time. One of the most common complaints of OOo is that it is a bloated app
that is slow and takes up too many resources.

I assumed that Sun kept the Java portions of OOo in since they liked to
Java. In the age of netbooks, tablets and mobile computing, trimming the
becomes more important.

Would it be possible to remove the Java portions of LibreOffice and
reimplement them without the need to fire up a JVM?

Is there a technical advantage of running the wizards and such in Java that
I'm not aware of?
