That's not what I read.
Quoting the FAQ[1]:

 #|  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.
