What has OpenJDK to do with the JCK ? OpenJDK != Java, so there are FOU restrictions on that
(guessing here). Since Sun is the on that can release a Java version from the OpenJDK, FOU
restrictions is not an issue for Sun themselves.

Just a "though" experiment :

1) We get the JCK and release "Java" under FOU restrictions.
2) We release "Harmony" (same code, same version), as Harmony (as we didn't run the TCK on
one), so without restrictions.

Don't know if we can legally do that, but logic says we can (although legal stuff is *not*
logic these days)
