"Or possibly its that Solaris matters so little to Oracle as a whole that they couldn't be bothered to go find out what the Solaris product team was doing"

I think the term I'd use there is "benign neglect". It's as if they do now realise that they're still effectively stuck in a past era in many ways and that they think only way that they can get out of it now is by gaining money and income through litigation. Experience has shown that approach doesn't usually have a happy ending (Hi, SCO Group).
