IME Java is mostly relevant for in-house development, which is neither here nor there -- it cannot be considered "non-free" since it is not published, only run internally. Even the FSF allows to run GPL code internally without publishing source code.
I suppose that, if the JVM implementors have half a brain, they will just publish a preliminary version of the code pending a real processor; the JVM should get updated then and everyone will be happy. If that is not the case, well, you cannot blame the Java language for that.
