Your call, but my thoughts are that there will already be some changes involved 
in testing and integrating AR1, for many.  So, having to change some referred to 
directory structures, etc, may not be a big impact overall.

I still use jini-core, jini-ext and sun-util myself.  I copy these files out of 
the distribution into a secondary, versioned structure (because I have made many 
edits on my copy of the 2.1 source tree).  The source of those jars is 
abstracted by this fact.
