I think you will find that all the Java specifications are protected by a
similar license (which basically preserves the namespace usage and requires
complete conformance from an implementation). Even specs that get printed
will have a license included in the book. Only third party books that
describe an API will not have such a license, but nor are they definitive
sources of information on an API specification.

Best get this cleared through FSF legal ASAP.
