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.
