As long as Sun makes money on licensing their proprietary Java implementation, and the whole technology collage around it, there is no business reason for them to release their implementation's source code under an open source license. It's a proprietary software vendor, it's not a charity. Pending huge management changes (and there would be quite a few changes necessary in the Java division afaict, including booting Graham Hamilton), it's not going to happen.
