Distributing (third party) binaries is not what OpenJDK is set up to do well. 
In the way of a broken analogy, it's a bit like the Linux kernel, and its 
source-code only kernel.org, then it is like, say, a full-fledged Linux 
distribution, that provides binaries, caters to end users, etc. Or gcc.gnu.org,
for another example.

That won't work, technically. But then, there is also a lot more work to 
distributing any open source code then finding a spot large enough to host 
a binary.
