I think that's a good idea, especially as a quick fix for the problem.

I do wonder how easy it would be to make a set for ourselves.  This
problem is going to repeat itself w/ Java EE 5 and EE 6 (if there is
one).   I've asked that these be distributed in future versions under a
license that works for us - it turns out CDDL doesn't appear to because
it's source (of a sort...) -  I suggested public domain.
