That's not what I read.
Quoting the FAQ:
#| 8. Does this license prevent me shipping any alternative
#| technologies in my OS distribution?
#| The DLJ does not restrict you from shipping any other
#| technologies you choose to include in your distribution.
#| However, you can't use pieces of the JDK configured in
#| conjunction with any alternative technologies to create
#| hybrid implementations, or mingle the code from the JDK
#| with non-JDK components of any kind so that they run
#| together. It is of course perfectly OK to ship programs
#| or libraries that use the JDK. Because this question has
#| caused confusion in the past, we want to make this absolutely
#| clear: except for these limitations on combining technologies,
#| there is nothing in the DLJ intended to prevent you from shipping
#| alternative technologies with your OS distribution.
