Please look at the Wiki page the edited sentence described, first.

The link this sentence is describing is not about Java 6 in particular,
and the link to NonFree was broken, so I removed it, and made the
sentence  more generic.

The OpenJDK the linked page is describing will not be in non-free for a
very long time, I guess, but in contrib, I guess?

It might a different case with a binary distribution of suns jdk (will
that be available as deb in parallell toi the really gpl free jdk?)

Tell me what you think and I'll change it to fit your tastes -
currently, saying "it is in Debian" is not exactly wrong.
