Obviously Oracle's business practice only applies to their Java implementations.

They could put it in Oracle Java for Linux if they wanted to (I don't know if they actually have so).

But IBM Java for Linux, OpenJDK for Linux, GCJ etc. are not under Oracles control (they do have some heavy influence on OpenJDK, but ...).
