I would just go do it.  After all, previous versions had the same kind
of code in it and it was allowed.  In my opinion, restricting
distribution would be a bad thing for Sun so I can't see why they would
ever want to do so.  But getting an official answer from legal would be
time consuming and possibly open up a can of worms.

The crimson parser itself is pretty stable.  Version 1.1.1 went into
J2EE 1.3 and I just integrated a newer version into JDK 1.4 beta2. 
Costin may be thinking about the XSLT processing parts of JAXP which
uses Xalan-j.  We recently updated the code so that it uses the Xalan
DTM code for performance fixes and maintenance.

I'll try to post this to that email list.
