Cliff has a draft page of license "information" at:

Of note is that the Sun BCL license (that you are quoting from) is 
explicitly listed in the section of "excluded" licenses.   Thus, you 
cannot distribute it with Apache software.

I think the problem with the BCL license is the indemnification clauses.   
Not sure though.  IANAL
