Is it not used by anything else?  If so, I agree it makes sense to
disable it, unless you think it is useful elsewhere.  I could add
libidn11-java back if there is real usage of it, but if it is not needed
for anything particular right now, I would prefer if you disable it
until there is real interest in using it.  When/if that occurs, we can
always add libidn11-java and jxmpp-stringprep-libidn back again.
Hopefully, XMPP will be updated to use something newer than StringPrep
