No my list doesn't include games/domination and there are bound to be
others which must have jdk. In fact the reason I avoided openjdk for so
long was a work need to run a particular commercial app which insisted
on jdk being installed. I don't have need for that app any more, so I'm
free to go openjdk.

My list is:
graphviz libbluray octave Coin VTK commons-daemon ProjectLibre kodi
cudatoolkit apache-tomcat OpenCASCADE portmidi belle-sip LibreOffice
freewrl gdal opencv mlt

All good so far.
