Solution to Oracle's Java Security Problem

Today's Network World article "77 More Great Ideas for Running a Security Program" (read 'em here) is a decent defense-only playbook of ideas. Given the security pressure on Oracle's Java toolset, I hereby nod to the Captain of my Cyber Privateering Fantasy League Team (meet 'em here) Larry Ellison. So Larry, how about you find a small country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with the United States, and get them to set up an aggressive Cyber Privateering response mechanism? You could fund the whole operation from loot collected from cyber thieves worldwide, and make Java-exploit miscreants your poster children for what happens bad Internet citizens. Find somebody to run the operation who has worn out his welcome in the U.S. and fund him (wink wink) with a gift to his ailing mother. Taiwan immediately comes to mind and makes sense for a lot of very good reasons. Think about it. The 78th Great Idea for Running Java Security!

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
