About the latter, at a guess:

1.  It's not a licence.
2.  And nobody submitted it.

My new-BSD with required eating of a pastrami sandwich licence hasn't 
been approved, either.

Anyway, an open-source licence with an added grant of rights tacked on
(which is what GPLv2 w/classpath exception is) is obviously also open

CDDL 1.1 is OSI Certified.
