This particular word has been dropped from some revisions of the
license, including the one I use for my IPMItool project as well
as for all the Cobalt Networks code that we released:


The full text of this clause now states:

    You acknowledge that this software is not designed or intended for
    use in the design, construction, operation or maintenance of any
    nuclear facility.

I can't say why or when the wording was changed.  There is still
software coming out of Sun that uses one form or the other,
including STSF, sunxacml and portions of java3d, java-games, and
the java-enterprise framework.
