Let's not forget that the Derby codebase extends back to the dim dark 
distant days of the 1990's before many of the ASF's Java projects even 

Moreover the project needs to limit the number of external dependencies 
so that it remains easy to embed, which is still a design goal.

As for use by other projects, most are database agnostic and can use 
Derby through the JDBC API. We use it in Geronimo to provide database 
services to applications and may extend that to internal data at some 
point. Craig has said JDO is using it and I believe Torque now supports 
Derby data bindongs as well.
