First, the duplication refers to source packages.  Second,
openjdk-6-source is like the emacs*-el packages, it provides IDE
navigation support.

You could use reflection or AOP for that so that you don't need source
code at all.

However, the correct way is to get the changes you need into the
upstream version, or adjust the client code.  We do this for non-Java
code all the time.
