If you can find adequate WP:RS to justify the move - do it - the point is the Java trench is historically correct - since the larger Sumatran earthquakes the broader Sunda term has been used extensively due to better knowledge of plate tectonics and the extent of the trench and the plate - so if it is moved - for a good acknowledgement of WP ...
Java Island is located on the east side of Sunda Arc, residing between Sumatra and Bali. Its oceanic crust's thickness is approximately 20-25 kilometers. With the geological activities and the tectonic nature of Sunda Arc, megathrust earthquakes and volcanic activities are ubiquitous at Java island.
