Just for the record, nobody is saying that Sun shouldn't "keep
copyright" on the code.  None of our CLAs involve a copyright
assignment, so no matter what happens Sun (just like any contributor)
will keep the copyright on whatever code they write.

The question is if they should be explicitly acknowledged in NOTICE,
despite the fact that we traditionally don't do that for code
contributed under a CLA and developed on our mailing lists.
