Considering that the combo-package does simplify both building and installation for those users who want both the development and the runtime environment  and that it's already been created, it seems to be only beneficial to have it in the AUR. Perhaps it could be taken over by the jre/jkd maintainer (or vice versa) later on to consolidate the effort.

Sorry if I'm missing something.
