"Majority of Oracle people haven't yet understood what significance it would have anyway (for instance, in conversations they would confuse MySQL commercial licensing (non-GPL) and subscriptions (GPL) and just in general when you can use the GPL version and when not)"
This was a common accusation against MySQL Ab and then later Sun as well. So not specific to Oracle at all.
