Sun License to Give Developers Patent-Use Rights

I'm not sure I understand what the CDDL buys us as a software development community. Has anyone gone through this in enough detail to come back with an informed opinion ? Though I know it's the realm of the legal beagles,  I wish I had the time to dig into it,

Sources say the company plans to use the CDDL (Common Development and Distribution License) for Open Solaris, and that it's considering open-sourcing its Java Enterprise System under the CDDL as well.
