I guess being constructive could f.ex. mean (in that order):

1. going through the list and noting where Java1 & Java2 differ
2. checking whether/where the free implementations (do not) conform
3. send patches

Saying that the free VMs doesn't implement all of Java2 may help people
not to waste their time on trying out different combinations of OSS, but
I can't see how going on ranting about how crap the free implementations
are will help anybody.
