Yes, that would work for me.

sufficiently clear for whoever imports code into our repositories to
objectively decide what to import or not. Statements like the above
one are perfectly fine.

As a contrary example, someone earlier suggested (elsewhere, thanks
for bringing this discussion here now BTW) considering "only files
which are copyright Oracle", that's the kind of qualifier that I find
insufficient as it doesn't say how we can find out about that
copyright. If something like this is needed it should describe a very
clear "filter", like "only files which have an embedded Oracle
copyright header".
