No. OpenJDk6 was forked off JDK7 after we'd done the open source
work there, and had API changes reverted.
Also 6-open has a ton of direct fixes and changes that aren't in Oracle 
JDK and
probably vice versa .. and its not just fonts - there are other closed 
parts too.

So they are alike in significant parts of the source, and that they
pass the JCK for Java SE 6, but the similarity ends shortly thereafter.
