The JRE & Tomcat are supplied under separate licenses, so that's likely 
to prevent them being distributed together - I'd guess.

The steps to configure Tomcat to use a given JRE are so minor compared 
to configuring it for production/your application that you could 
probably write your own installer script to do the last bit.

steps being:

1. run jre installer
2. set JAVA_HOME environment variable
3. unzip tomcat in target dir
