Ah, that appears to be much the old Sun page with a slight cosmetic
makeover (principally logo substitution).  They haven't even updated the
contact address on it.  I do not see anything there that says whether or
not "personal, individual use" still requires a paid support contract.

I just remembered I know a guy at Sun^WOracle, and will ask him later
today whether he can get official clarification on the hobbyist-license
issue and patch availability for same.
