There is a lot of stuff that bouncycastle does outside JCE, like create 
SSL certificates.

One thing bouncycastle can't do with JCE is build it with Gump, as the 
JCE runtime only works with builds that are signed by someone it trusts. 
If you bypass JCE, you can run with builds you do yourself, or which 
gump does (if we persuade the BC folk to join gump for the non-JCE bits)
