JDK 1.4 and beyond

Here's a question (just curious):

As of now, if you want the source to a JDK, you have to wait until it's released.  Has there been any discussion of getting access to their source repository to get a head-start on development of future JDKs?

Also, has there been any consideration of copying modifications necessary to compile on FreeBSD into Sun's source (that is, assuming it doesn't make compiling on other platforms impossible)?

It seems to me that doing these two things would significantly decrease the amount of time necessary for a native JDK.  Any possibility of either/both of those things occurring?
