Scripts, source, and Reciprocal Licenses
This sounds like a case where a narrow exception to allow this usage would be warranted. It would seem to me that the only potential users that might be affected by such a usage would not have any trouble with this, as it essentially is a 'platform' dependency akin to Java.

I agree with Sam's comment above. It is much like the OSGi manifest insertion question in that the issue is the ASF releasing very tiny amounts of 'code' under a different license.
It also though links to the question on distributing Category B source code.
Inactive issue. I'll contact the UIMA project for an update on this issue.
Resolving as Won't Fix for now. The issue is no longer relevant to UIMA (see http://markmail.org/message/as3j5rrxkj7wmb35).
