OpenJDK is released under the GNU GPL Version 2. This license allows you 
to do whatever you want with the code (As long as you abide by the 
restrictions of the GPL). There is nothing funny going on here. If you 
feel something is lacking, fix it :)

There are some legal issues with the branding/trademarks of 
"Java"/"OpenJDK", but again, if you want to change OpenJDK, it's not 
really OpenJDK anymore, so don't call it that. But again, nothing is 
stopping you playing with/distributing the code.

I'm not a lawyer.
