What is the copyright grantback dance? If you wrote the code what
possible issue can there be? No one should be able to take away
your rights to your code.
Frankly a lot of this is still learning for us.
We've had less info internally on this contribution
process etc etc than has been communicated externally.
And when legal etc say we can only look at contributions made under
an SCA, we pretty much have to do what they say. Perhaps
there are other rules which allow it but I don't know that,
and as an individual engineer I don't want to be making calls myself.
I'd probably get me or Sun in trouble if I did.

The rush (it was a close thing even if that's not apparent)
to get the source launched for JavaOne meant that we are nowhere
near on the infrastructure to support it etc.
