Yes, and that's why I asked if it was relevant for OSX only, since then I believe the dependency to JasPer wouldn't be necessary then.

But regardless of that, I realize that it is better to just depend on the jp2k image plugin. That plugin might depend on JasPer or not (on Mac it can probably be done differently if people feel there is a good reason for it).

True, I didn't think about that.
