Well, that especially means that it is now time to consider the removal
of sun-java6 from Debian.

We, the distros, are no longer allowed by Oracle to redistribute this
version [1] [2].
The OpenJDK (6 or 7) is now the way to go.

About stable, I don't know what the security team would recommend
here ?!

The DLJ has finally been retired, and so has been this project.
