> Ok. Then my plan is to install the Apple Java 6 JDK and the Oracle Java 7, 8 and maybe 9 JDK, and the Oracle Java 8 JRE. Does that cover all the bases for now?

The JDKs will install the JRE automatically, and since I don’t think it ever downgrades, you will end up with the Java 9 JRE after installing all the JDKs. If you really want to have the Java 8 JRE, you can install in this order: 6, 7, 9, delete the JRE, then 8. But I don’t think you need to care about the JRE.

Other than the above I think that sounds good.
