I wouldn't say recently, but yes.  They did change licenses a while ago *for 
new releases* from BCL to CDDL which moved them from Category X to Category B.   
So yes, substituting the geronimo jars in MOST cases is no longer necessary.  
However, not all of the Sun jars have had a new release with the new License.     
That said, may folks would prefer the Apache licensed versions.

That said, you specifically asked about saaj-impl, not saaj-api.   Geronimo 
doesn't have a saaj-impl.  The closest at Apache would likely be in Axis.   I 
believe they have an saaj-impl based on Axiom someplace.  Geronimo does have 
an saaj-api I believe.

Well, you'd need to mention the CDDL license for the saaj-impl in the 
LICENSE.TXT.
