So after looking into the 2 remaining projects that haven't switched
yet to Batik 1.9.1, It doesn't seem like they would be harmed by the
removal of 1.6/1.7 from the Photon Orbit (active) build.

- TM4E only has an optional dependency to Batik 1.7 or higher. The
usage of Batik is limited to org.apache.batik.css.parser.Parser and
between 1.7 and 1.9.1, this class did not change API or make any major
modifications to that class.

- BIRT is still using the R20170307180635 (Neon.3) Orbit build and is
unlikely to switch for Photon.

As a result I'll be removing Batik 1.6 & 1.7 from the Orbit active
build. If anyone is opposed to such a move, or if issues arise, we can
easily undo the change.
