Then, as you know, Policy contains the instruction:
  'When in doubt about a copyright, send mail to debian-legal@lists.debian.org'
and Anthony Towns already mentioned:
  'both James and Jeroen had extensive contact with Sun to ensure that
   the tricky clauses were actually okay'
so surely there was some doubt? Then lack of mail to debian-legal looks
like a policy-related bug, as if sun-java5 wasn't problematic enough.
