[ba-unrev-talk] J2SE License Terms

I've just been reading the J2SE JRE license terms. It contains the following
passages:    (01)

"5.  Notice of Automatic Software Updates from Sun.  You
acknowledge that the Software may automatically download,
install, and execute applets, applications, software
extensions, and updated versions of the Software from Sun
("Software Updates"), which may require you to accept
updated terms and conditions for installation.  If
additional terms and conditions are not presented on
installation, the Software Updates will be considered part
of the Software and subject to the terms and conditions of
the Agreement.    (02)

"6.  Notice of Automatic Downloads.  You acknowledge that, by
your use of the Software and/or by requesting services that
require use of the Software, the Software may automatically
download, install, and execute software applications from
sources other than Sun ("Other Software").  Sun makes no
representations of a relationship of any kind to licensors
of Other Software.  TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW..."    (03)

Does anyone know whether these are new terms and what they really entail?
They look uncannily like terms I would expect to find in an MS license.    (04)
