ASSEMBLY_EXCEPTION should be removed ?

in the course of the recent licensing cleanups I've just realized that
the OpenJDK sources as well as the generated images still contain the
ASSEMBLY_EXCEPTION license file [1].

I think this is just a leftover of the first OpenJDK versions which
still required some binary parts provided by Sun at time in order to
build and run successfully. As far as I can tell, this is not
necessary since at least OpenJDK 7 so I think the ASSEMBLY_EXCEPTION
file could also be removed.

What do you think?

Thank you and best regards,
