I believe the answer is YES...

Most especially if the 32 bit JDK6 version is a Universal Binary
that'll run on 10.4 ppc and 10.4+ Intel.  Additionally, there will be
demand for the 64 Bit version on 10.5.

I think these "older compatibilities" are much more important for
openjdk6 than for openjdk7.
