I don't agree that ASF is acting irresponsibly in this case, but even  
a responsible action may bring no desired results. So...

In such situations my own first preference is action, not activism,  
meaning - can we do the right thing ourselves vs. forcing somebody  
else into doing that right thing. (I don't imply anything bad by  
"activism", I simply mean that as one possible way of the problem  
solving). In this light the idea of an open standards body is much  
more attractive than a legal (or otherwise) war with Sun. That may be  
a long shot, but the benefit would be huge too. So anybody thinks  
this is a realistic idea, and dissatisfaction with JCP among its  
players is enough to get most of them on board?
