Some functionality of the pdfbox need the BC. I would also prefer to  
remove this dependancy because BC is a heavy weight library and do not  
harmony with a small pdf library.

I found out that the PDF Encryption need the library. So only for  
encrypted pdf documents.

Maybe someone can rewrite the code of the *.pdmodel.encryption.* and  
use only the java cryptography extension (JCE)
