So.. maybe it's time to re-think the way java-* overlays are used? I'd opt for
"staging" approach: let java-experimental be well, experimental - you don't know
whenever something will work, is a good idea, you're still working on it, etc.
java-overlay would become a staging ground: after some time (to be defined)
ebuilds would end in main tree.

So the ebuild migration would look like:
 * experimental: fresh stuff
 * overlay: checked by somebody else (peer reviewed)
 * main tree: after some time in overlay (like a month)

That would enforce from where one can have dependencies in particular overlay,
would (hopefully) reduce the size of overlays.

Something similar was done:
