There is an idea to suggest the public name space in our Classpath that would not be a part of java, javax and so on API, but where we could release the classes we are promising to keep stable and compatible for future releases. This would allow to solve cases when we have something implemented, but must keep undocumented just because the matching Sun class is in sun.* name space. This name space could be automatically included into our API doc and would be a place where we could place the independent implementations of something remembering the sun.* classes. Also our own extensions like HTML to DOM parser or CORBA 3.0.3 features that are defined in mine OMG book but not yet supported by jdk 1.5. The proposed prefix could be something like "gnu.org" or "fsf" (direct analog to "sun") or similar. Maybe somebody more competent in software licensing could check if we are allowed to do this (we have a lot of classes gnu. name space anyway).
