In section 5.F.IV of the JSPA from

Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither this subparagraph IV nor Section 5.F.II (concerning reciprocal patent licensing, shall be understood to require Oracle to modify license agreements for Java technology that Oracle has in place, or to modify or replace in future license agreements for Java technology provisions comparable to those currently in place, where the RI and/or TCK would be covered by such license agreements. This proviso shall not be understood to exempt Oracle, when it is the Spec Lead, from the obligation to license the TCK separate from the corresponding RI code when the Spec is developed under any JSR submitted hereafter.

I would argue this is unnecessarily broad and should be dropped in the spirit of transparency as one cannot understand that ramifications of the statement by reading the available JCP documents.
