TVT's commerical impetus (the embedded market) that feeds the design
of that library. Classpath has no such restriction.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but isn't the entire point of distributing Classpath under GPL + Exception to allow Cygnus to market it to the embedded community? While this may not effect the design of Classpath (or at least it doesn't appeared to have yet), it could be argued that the licensing of Classpath is at least as important as the design, at least as far as perception is concerned.

All things considered, I would say that Classpath does indeed have such a restriction.
