I personally think it's a good idea as I agree that the GFDL sucks,
but I have virtually 0 influence in this area.  The person you'd need
to talk to is Shaun; as GDPFL and the one working hardest on this
currently he naturally has the most say.  He'd also be the one who'd
have the best idea of who to contact and how much work you'll be in
for.  I'm guessing that if you could get him and Sun to agree to dual
license then you'd have the majority of the documentation covered but
that's just a random guess on my part; he'd be able to tell you
