I was wondering about this too. It seems wrong. The icon, and/or the 
header file
should be in "closed".  We do not put branded images in the open tree, no
matter how its encoded since they aren't open source.
The openjdk should use something like the open source duke icon.
I am not sure I see how/where that works.

BTW good luck seeing

its marked for internal consumption only (for some reason I can't fathom).
