The problem is that the FAQ itself says that it *has* no legal value, so
we can simply ignore it when checking the license.

Could the person responsible for checking the license please come out
and explain why the concerns several people have raised are not a
problem for the distribution of the sun java package? 

I mean, I'd love if we would be able to distribute Sun's Java, but not
under these circumstances.

And, BTW, I'm not at all impressed by your way of dealing with concerns
of other DDs.
