I would suggest clarifications like "and we haven't made a blatant 
typographical error" to be removed from the FAQ. This sort of "insurance" 
would make people think twice what Sun interprets as "blatant typos..." and 
why it is actually put there, since the FAQ must have been reviewed by a team 
of responsible people. 

Although I appreciate your efforts improving the FAQ, it is the license itself 
which must be improved. License that needs a large FAQ to clarify its 
contents is not a good one ;-)

P.S. I'm not a DD, and speak of myself.
