Sure. Here: http://openjdk.java.net/legal/openjdk-trademark-notice.html
You can show that to the distro packagers and discuss with them how/if

Mark Reinhold contributed a patch some time ago to IcedTea to make it
comply with that trademark license and only call it OpenJDK if it was
configured "in the right way", which has been integrated.
