In the case that Oracle wins solely on Structure, Sequence, and Organization, I don't see how such a ruling immediately spells doom for competitors trying to interoperate.

Competitors can still publish a functionally identical but differently organized API, then provide a competitor2us.sh script to statically change references to their own API. Sure, the friction is higher, but not unreasonable.

Wow. This makes sense.
