The problem is not the choice-of-law, but the choice-of-venue clause,
as you yourself indicated in.[1] I don't know why it has yet to be
removed by Sun, but we were told that that (or relicensing of works
under GPLv2/3) was in progress a year ago.

In any event, this has been rather laboriously discussed previously in
threads about the CDDL[2,3,4], so I'll stop here.
