"Actually what I want to know as well is why Sun decided to bundle in Derby with the JDK! Its not as if the JDK needs more things in it...its about time they started taking things out!"

Because it is a Java DEVELOPMENT kit? It is not in runtime that users get, its just a little helper database for developers to prototype with.
