No need for it, the GPL was never part of the question, as it has been LGPL-licensed by Oracle all the time, it was never GPL licensed. :-)
And a weak-copyleft was included from my non-official observer point of view, to allow ISV such as IBM to become happy with a code base that they can ship proprietary plugins for. Seems that has not been sufficient incentive :-).
