It seems with with the suggested patch both -Djava.awt.headless=true and 
-headless are passed to jar. I suspect it is either redundant or 
launcher.bash converts "-headless" to "-Djava.awt.headless=true". In 
ubuntu there is no room for special treatment of "-headless" option by 
the shell wrapper:
--- >8 ----
if [ -n "${JAVA_HOME}" ] && [ -x "${JAVA_HOME}/bin/java" ] ; then
elif [ -x /usr/bin/java ] ; then
     echo Cannot find JVM
     exit 1

$JAVA -jar -Djava.net.useSystemProxies=true 
/usr/share/plantuml/plantuml.jar ${@}
---- 8< ---

"Basically, this is because PlantUML needs to have access to some 
graphical resources"

I have no idea what is actually affected.

Which peace of code (java or plantuml.jar) handles "-headless" option? 
This question affects decision if jar and executable wrapper modes may 
share same list of arguments. Plantuml site recommends namely 
-Djava.awt.headless=true. Anyway with or without the patch, 
"-Djava.awt.headless=true" is added unconditionally in the jar mode. I 
would revert that patch and either add it to java header argument or to 
a new defcustom.

Are there cases when :cmdline header argument is not enough and extra 
custom variable org-plantuml-args (org-plantump-executable-args) should 
be used?

Actually I have realized that I do not understand why babel code uses 
mix of defcustom and header arguments. The latter are more flexible and 
may be adjusted per source block. On the other hand they may be set in 
init file. Even java executable and path to jar file may be obtained 
from header arguments.
