It would be very nice and it has already happened in the past.
Transvirtual donated their RMI packages to the FSF and they are now
integrated into GNU Classpath. Interestingly enough the Intel Orp
developers have made the packages able to run JBoss on Orp+Classpath and
have submitted patches. Brian Jones added those patches to CVS

GNU Classpath is already used by a couple of VMs and adding Kaffe to
that list would be very nice.
