Good, but you shouldn't decide what others have to do. Some people are
interested in java in non-free, it's not your job to try to forbid them to
work on that.

The license is good enough for Debian (ftpmasters took their decisions).
There's no fix to require, but it would be good to continue working them
to enhance even more the license. Such a constructive behaviour would put
us in a good position to make sure that Sun releases java in a DFSG-free
compliant license when they will open-source it.
