There are often cases where a bug is "critical" to one person but 
inconsequential to almost everyone else.
That is one of the top reasons people purchase a support contract for 
software ..
Also, the only place we can push it (if we were allowed) is to the 
Oracle JDK LTS .. it won't appear
in the open sources. You won't see any more Oracle fixes going into 11u.
So if you want this fix in 11u your choices are
1) A support contract with Oracle or someone else offering the same 
level of support
2) Build your own JDK and ship it with the fix, making sure your 
customers understand
that what you are giving them is your build .. and isn't up to date with 
Oracle 11u.
