I filed JCR-2885 for this. We can do it for Jackrabbit 2.3.

Makes sense. For now we've mostly simply imported everything included in 
Tika as I've considered the extra weight not too big a price for the 
added functionality (even if minimal). But you (and others) are right in 
that especially as Tika expands to cover more niche formats we should 
start being more picky in what we want to support in Jackrabbit. People 
who need support for the more exotic formats can always add the required 
libraries individually to their deployments.
