I think the minimal change would be to just ask for changing the word
"non-transferable" to "transferable" and maybe remove the explicit
mention of your name so that the permission notice reads:

    Sun hereby grants a non-exclusive, worldwide, transferable license
    to use and distribute the Java Software technologies as a part of a
    larger work in source and binary forms, with or without
    modification, provided that the following conditions are met: [...]

I believe those conditions are not a problem. But I will ask the
official GNU maintainers if they see any other problems.
