IMHO, oracle , heavily centralized, may want to consolidated various 
open source license, so moving forward one just use ONE license, one 
download site etc.
Hope that there will be open source version with support from list only  
and commercial version with oracle  premier support
my 2c

Even the current version of SGE is good enough for most (over 90%) of the clusters - again, just my opinion.
