I'd love to. And the topic would be something like
  Java is not a proprietary language: and here's the proof:
  Classpath, IKVM, Jaos, Kaffe, Wonka, ...

However, frankly I suspect that the JavaPolis agenda is set by their 
sponsors, and that some of these would not want to hear such a talk. So let's 
by all means propose a paper or two for next year (like I already did this 
year) _and then_ if it is refused, just convene our own alternative 
conference at a nearby location.

In the meantime, is there anything planned for FOSDEM?  E.g., an open-source 
Java track? This could be an opportunity the thesis that the future of Java 
lies with us, not with S*n.
