Now this is bordering on FUD.

Exhibit A specifically applies only to existing classes and the VM  
(the "base system"). This is to both enable the possibility of  
commercial or even closed source use (by building "applications" on  
top of the base system) while enforcing sharing of enhancements to  
the base system. Very well-balanced, IMHO. And no, IANAL.
